This meeting is with the General Manager of the Merc Co-op, Rita Henncke. Justice Matters is reaching out to Directors/CEOs of businesses, banks, major employers, construction companies, and developers in Lawrence with three purposes:
- Introduce the organization/build a relationship of mutual respect
- Seek allies in the call for an affordable housing trustfund in Lawrence
- Request financial investment in our work on affordable housing
A trained spokesperson will lead the meeting, but Justice Matters members are encouraged to come to show broad public support on these matters. We will host a pre-meeting in the cafeteria section of the Merc at noon to finalize our approach and then meet with Rita at 1 pm in her office.
