Thursday's night's virtual conversation will feature Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson, Police Chief Calvin Williams and Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish. The free event will run from 6 p.m.-7:15 p.m. ET and be accessible to the public via cavs.com/tufc.

Next week's conversation will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 28 and feature Turner Sports' Taylor Rooks, Fox Sports' Emmanuel Acho, Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman, Cleveland Indians president Chris Antonetti and Cleveland Browns general manager Andrew Berry. The Cavs are one of nine NBA and WNBA teams to be taking part in the third annual summit this year, which is intended to provide "insight into social justice reform," as well as "strategies to combat systemic racism and showcase voices leading change around the country."

“We continually seek to unite, inspire and activate, not only in Northeast Ohio, but nationally as well. The opportunity to ‘team up’ and collaborate with other NBA and WNBA teams is welcomed and also provides another platform for our community to engage in critical social justice conversations and education,” said Len Komoroski, CEO of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. “This topic is bigger than basketball and efforts such as this are vital to making progress and creating sustainable improvements.”
