Fairness Fort Worth is also encouraging people to attend the Ft. Worth City Council meeting on Tuesday night, July 14.
Here is info from their statement:
“Several hundred citizens are expected to attend the council meeting.
“Fairness Fort Worth contacted the city managerâ€™s office to ensure citizen concerns about the event would be heard at tomorrows council meeting. Spokesman Jon Nelson is scheduled to address the Council following more than seventy other agenda items. The mayor may move an item up on the agenda although doing so is rare in practice. In an effort to mitigate an already long agenda, Fairness Fort Worth has identified three individuals who will speak for the organization rather than having several hundred individuals each speak. A â€œFacebookâ€ page was created immediately after the raid to allow members the ability to discuss the issue, share stories and provide photographs of what they saw. The page, â€œRainbow Lounge Raidâ€ now has more than 12,000 members.
“We are interested in talking with city leaders about FWPD and TABC actions, the investigation process and how we can proactively work together in the future to avoid any repeat of the unfortunate incident,â€ Nelson stated. â€œIt is important for our community and for our city to begin this dialog now. Staying up a little later than normal is a small price for starting the healing process.â€
