RAPID CITY, SD—How are many organizations using their resources to address community needs?

The Mniluzahan Okolakiciyapi Ambassadors (MOA Ambassadors) and the Rapid City Human Relations Commission are hosting a Community Learning Forum Thursday, June 17.  The Forum begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Western Dakota Tech Event Center and will feature presentations from local leaders of several community resource organizations.

Presentations will be provided by the Rapid City Police Department, Creek Patrol, Rapid City Fire Department’s Mobile Medic, Care Campus, Health and Human Services, Oyate Health and Camp Mniluzahan.

“The work of building relationships and building community is ‘forever work’. This community learning forum is another step in that process of being together, learning together, building relationships and community, together,” said Malcom Chapman, Human Relations Commission coordinator.  “In this particular instance, it is important to increase our collective knowledge of services being offered in our community and that is what this forum is designed to do.”

The Forum theme is ‘The more YOU know, the better WE do’ and is billed as an uplifting, informative listening session.

“We invited all of Rapid City to gain increased knowledge about different ways to address important community needs that affect everyone,” said Karen Mortimer of the MOA Ambassadors.  “When you know better, we all do better. The forum is an opportunity to learn about different ways to address needs and get important questions addressed and answered.”

The Community Learning Forum is free and open to the public.  Doors to the event will open at 6 p.m. with the program starting at 6:30 p.m.
