REDDING, Calif - The Native Roots Network is a local community group that aims at creating positive change for the native community and everyone that lives in Redding.
Members of that community group said on Thursday they will host their annual “People’s State of the Union Address” to look back at what Redding as a city overcame in 2018 and discuss the focus for 2019.
In an email, organization leaders said in part, "We are coming together to conduct an arts-based storytelling session where our community gets to be part of an intentional and facilitated process to co-create a poetic expression of the 'people' and our state of the Union."
In light of their annual meeting, Action News Now went out into the public to ask residents their opinions on what city leaders should focus on for 2019.
“We have a huge homeless problem here in Shasta County and Redding mostly I don't know what to do about it but we need to do something we have people camping out all over the place,” said resident Mike Sieglock.
The "People's State of the Union Address" will begin at 5:00 Thursday evening at the Old City Hall building.
The address is a private event.
