This kickoff event brings the national discussion of law enforcement and media coverage home to Wausau. Reports from the police, the news, bystanders, or even our own observations don't always match up. How can we stay informed about what's happening in our neighborhoods? How do we know who is telling the truth? This kickoff will be followed by four more community discussion events in June, September, October and November.
