Public Hearings

GTRC's three public hearings will allow the entire community to hear a sampling of the statements that will go into the Commission's final report. They will also allow statement-givers to publicly tell their stories, in many cases for the first time, which will provide a window into the perspectives, memories and feelings of individuals whose lives were impacted by the 1979 shootings.

Individuals interested in speaking at a public hearing must first make a statement to the Commission and indicate an interest in making that statement publicly. Not all statement-givers will be able to speak at a hearing.

Please mark your calendars for the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's upcoming public hearings:
