A police officer, firefighter, physician and other frontline health and safety professionals will share stories of working amid COVID-19 and other challenges during a virtual listening session from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesday.

“Service and Safety: Stories from the Front Lines” is sponsored by the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation and its "Speak Your Peace" program. The online event is open to the public and will take place by Zoom video conference.

“The past year has been unlike any other,” foundation President and CEO Shaun Floerke said in a Friday news release. “But our frontline public safety and health officials have performed lifesaving duties and cared for our community, even as those responsibilities have put them in danger and added stress to their lives. We want to honor and support them by listening to them.”

Panel moderators will be Carl Crawford, city of Duluth human rights officer, and Tadd Johnson, senior director of American Indian tribal relations and a professor at the University of Minnesota.
