Iowa City Council Special Formal Meeting
Tuesday, June 16 at 7 p.m.
The Iowa City Council will take up the demands of the Iowa Freedom Riders, as well as other issues related to systemic racism and policing policies, during a special formal meeting on Tuesday night. The council discussed the demands and related issues during its special work session on June 9, but this will be the first time the council can take actions related to the demands.
The special formal meeting will be held via Zoom, as all city council meetings have been since March 24 due to COVID-19.
Anyone interested in participating in the meeting or submitting a comment online will need to register at the meeting’s Zoom page.
