West Siders invited to virtual town hall

More than 20 elected officials – including Congressman Danny Davis, state Reps. La Shawn Ford and Camille Lilly, and state Sen. Kimberly Lightford – will be hosting a “tele” town hall April 7 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on the impact of COVID-19 on black communities.
