City of Kyle set to host Hispanic Heritage Month events
The City of Kyle is set to host several Hispanic Heritage Month events.
The city is inviting community members to attend the Dialogue for Peace and Progress 2022 – Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month on Friday, Sept. 16 from 7-8:30 p.m.
The Dialogues for Peace and Progress are an event series that take place in conjunction with Black History Month, Hispanic Heritage Month and Juneteenth and work to join community members and leaders for open and honest conversations to raise awareness and, if necessary, facilitate change in the City of Kyle.
Panelists for the Sept. 16 dialogue will represent a multitude of perspectives and backgrounds, the city said, adding that panelists are currently being recruited. City councilmembers Daniela Parsley and Yvonne Flores-Cale will co-moderate the panel discussion.
The Dialogues for Peace and Progress event will be held in-person at Kyle City Hall, 110 W. Center St. Other viewing options will also be available, including streaming online through Kyle10, the City’s YouTube channel, and the City of Kyle Facebook page.
