The Citizens Campaign and Mayor Steven Fulop invite you to attend the Jersey City Call to Service Summit on Saturday, June 14, 2014 from 11 am to 1 pm in City Hall. The Summit will empower residents with the training and support they need to bring their talents, energy, and ideas to make an impact in their city & provide the opportunity to meet like-minded citizens.

The day’s events will kick-off with remarks from The Citizens Campaign Chairman Harry Pozycki, LatinoJustice President Juan Cartagena and Mayor Steven Fulop. An interactive panel will follow featuring leading experts on how to move ideas into action:

• US Strong Director Curtis Fisher will discuss how to drill down and tackle big policy issues at the local level

Small group discussions, facilitated by Creative New Jersey, will provide attendees with the opportunity to identify the issues they find most important in the City and begin the conversation on how to implement solutions.
