Virtual Town Hall Part II sponsored by Iron Lives.  This event is open to anyone in the general public via Zoom, register to join in Thursday July 23 at 6:30 PM; participants will be splitting into four teams to determine specific next steps in proceeding in positivity: Mindfulness & Mental Health, Supporting Minority-Owned Businesses, Communicating with Youth, A Beginner's Discussion about Race.

Today's students face negative pressures. As a result, they risk making life-altering decisions that leave a devastating impact on their future. For more than a decade, IRON Lives has been breaking the cycle of negativity through proven research-based programs that take our students from striving to thriving.

Organizer and founder, Amherst H.S principal Derrick Brown said “There was such valuable and a valid discussion at our first meeting  in June that  we felt we needed to keep the dialog going.” The previous event included such noted attendees as Mayor Tweedy, Abe Loper formerly of Young Professionals of Lynchburg, board members, business owners and local educators.
The community is encouraged to register
