Ms. Lawrence will be joined by a diverse panel of professionals, local citizens, and counselors along with an audience of Richmond area men poised to let their voices be heard.
“Miss Community Clovia” will open the microphone to hear what is on the minds of men through true-life stories of conflict, self-discovery and injustices, incorporating resolution and forgiveness. The distinguished panelist: Co-host and Executive Producer of the Nationally Syndicated Michael Baisden Show KJ, Senator Donald McEachin, Richmond Sheriff CT Woody, Rob Hall, Lawrence D. Wilder, Jr. Esq., Commonwealth of Virginia, Troy Hopkins, Rodney White, Dr. Leonard Edloe, Dr. Marcus Brown, Alice Freeman and more.
This platform for men is designed to discuss today’s hotly debated topics- family values, child support, education, low self-esteem, substance and domestic abuse to list a few. Ms. Community Clovia states, “Often men find themselves disturbed, frustrated disillusioned with public policies, race inequality and the disparity of employment opportunity and imprisonment. The media depiction of today’s urban male is frequently that of a self-destructive, materialistic monster devoid of goals or desire for long-term success. This Forum is designed to address these conditions and to find positive outcomes.”
