Montgomery Ethnic Affairs Committee and Councilmember George Leventhal To Host Community Forum July 20
Montgomery County’s Committee of Ethnic Affairs (CEA), the County’s Office of Community Partnerships and the office of Councilmember George Leventhal are inviting residents to offer opinions in a community conversation on the County’s “Days of Commemoration.” The forum will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20, in the first ......floor meeting room of the Rockville Library at 21 Maryland Ave. The original legislation for the Days of Commemoration was passed on March 28, 2006 (Bill No. 1-06: Special Days of Commemoration) and signed into law on July 7, 2006. This special law designates certain days of commemoration relating to the religious, ethnic, and cultural heritage of County residents.

This program is part of a series under a pilot program developed by the Committee for Ethnic Affairs to encourage communication among the diverse ethnic communities of Montgomery County. CEA is composed of residents and its role is to bridge the cultural diversity of all ethnic groups in the county. The CEA advises the county executive and the County Council on public policy that relates to ethnic affairs and promotes maximum involvement of all ethnic groups in the county government and other county services and programs.
The CEA also assists the county and its Office of Community Partnerships in organizing the World of Montgomery Festival, the county's annual ethnic heritage festival.
