Champaign County Community Coalition: A Year in Review

On December 13, 2023 the Champaign County Community Coalition hosted their “Year in Review” meeting with a special guest Dr. Tony Davis. This end of year event was a celebration with music and holiday treats. Community members heard from the various local police departments on accomplishments achieved during 2023 including increased staff hiring, reduced gun violence incidence, and a massive increase in community engagement. During the year in review, key events were lighted that showcased the mission of the Community Coalition, including, amongst many, the Black Mental Health and Wellness Conference, summer initiatives to support youth, and youth employment services. Lastly, during this special Day of Forgiveness, the Community Coalition invited Dr. Tony Davis to discuss his story and journey of forgiveness and play the trailer of his movie “I Forgive.”
