July 20, 2023 - Mayor Tom Henry today announced that he will partner with a number of African American pastors to launch a new group called the Ubuntu Collaborative. Ubuntu means “I am because we are,” and the hope of the newly developed group is to reignite the rich history of advocacy and collective impact that was present in the generations of unified African American pastors that came before. Also, the goal is to further engage and serve the African American community by uniting the strengths, talents and passions of all of the pastors who will be a part of the Ubuntu Collaborative. Mayor Henry will host quarterly meetings with the pastors with the intent of combining the collective wisdom and diverse resources of the pastors along with the resources of the City of Fort Wayne to effectively address the various needs and challenges that exist within our community.

The Ten Point Coalition Celebration will focus on the Ten Point Coalition’s four years of service to the Oxford community. Their engagement has yielded significant reductions in crime and an increase in community pride and hope.
