The city of Berkeley is holding a virtual town hall tonight where members of the public can hear from, and talk to, City Manager Dee Williams-Ridley, Police Chief Andrew Greenwood and Health Officer Dr. Lisa Hernandez in a conversation about race, health and policing during the pandemic.

“This pandemic has bluntly exposed deep, systemic inequities in our nation — issues that Berkeley is not immune from,” said Williams-Ridley, the first African-American woman to be Berkeley’s city manager. “Even while sheltering in place for safety, it’s critical that we talk so we can connect on such fundamental issues.”
