DeKalb County Commissioner Mereda Davis Johnson is inviting the community to attend a panel discussion she’s hosting, “The State of America and the Future of Our Youth and Senior Citizens,” featuring the Rev. Al Sharpton of the National Action Network.
The panel discussion will be held on Tuesday, April 11, 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the Lou Walker Senior Center, 2538 Panola Road, Lithonia.
In addition to Sharpton and Johnson, the panel will include DeKalb Commissioner Gregory Adams; State Representatives Pam Stephenson and Doreen Carter; and Lithonia Mayor Deborah Jackson.
Johnson said the panel discussion is critical in light of President Trump’s proposed budget cuts to domestic spending for programs that benefit youths and seniors.
