An Advocate For Equity In Public Service In Chattanooga

Tamara Steward
City of Chattanooga
Tamara Steward

Tamara Steward is chief equity officer for the City of Chattanooga - appointed last year by Mayor Tim Kelly as the first person to serve in that role.

She visited our studios here at WUTC ahead of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday on Monday - and this year’s MLK Day of Service and Donation Drive.

The event is a collaboration between the City of Chattanooga’s Department of Equity and Community Engagement with UTC’s Office of Multicultural Affairs, River City Company, the NAACP, Scenic Cities Beautiful Commission, the Bessie Smith Cultural Center and the Unity Group of Chattanooga - all to benefit these organizations: ArtsBuild, Chattanooga Community Kitchen - now CHATT Foundation - the Maclellan Shelter for Families, Patten Towers and Whiteside Faith Manor.

For more details on how to serve, visit: cha.city/mlkdos23.
