MOSPCE creates events that bring together some of our city's most notable public figures, faith leaders, activists, artists, and many other talented individuals. These events set the stage for and support our continuous effort to generate dialogues, address issues, celebrate diversity, and form new bridges between local government and those whom we serve.
