City of Fremont Invites Community to Register for Engage Fremont Community Meetings

Fremont community members are invited to participate in a series of community engagement activities that will take place this summer to assist the City in identifying community priorities and recommended next steps on the topic of policing and race in the City of Fremont. The initiative, Engage Fremont, will be led by City Manager Mark Danaj and will continue to carry out the City’s commitment to fostering an open dialogue with our residents.

This broader initiative stems from the Town Hall Meeting held on June 10 that featured the topic of policing in Fremont. During the virtual event, more than 800 community members listened in. People commented and asked questions on a wide variety of issues including social services, homeless services, use of force policies, and police accountability and transparency. The Town Hall was recorded and has been posted online along with an FAQ document that answers questions asked during the meeting. City leaders emphasized their desire to continue the dialogue with Fremont community members and their intent to develop a plan for an ongoing conversation.

The first element of the community outreach process is a survey requesting feedback from Fremont residents and business owners. The responses will also help determine discussion topics at the subsequent virtual outreach dialogues. The survey is open now through August 6, 2020, and can be accessed at Fremont.gov/OpenCityHall.

The second phase is a series of facilitated virtual dialogues related to policing and racism that will take place between July and August. The sign-ups for virtual community discussions will be made available Tuesday, July 14, at 8 p.m. on FremontPolice.gov/Engage.

In order to allow for facilitated discussions, space is limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Following the six small group discussions, a large town hall is scheduled for August 11 and will be open to all who would like to participate.

Pre-registration is required for the community dialogues. The virtual meetings will be held on the following dates and times on Zoom:

  • Thursday, July 16 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
  • Monday, July 20 from 3:00 p.m. –5:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 22 from 6:00 p.m. –8:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, July 23 from 3:00 p.m. –5:00 p.m.
  • Monday, August 3 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, August 4 from 6:00 p.m. –8:00 p.m.


The City of Fremont has long been a leader in progressive policing practices and is committed to responding to this pivotal moment in our nation by working with the local community to establish a shared vision of public safety that serves everyone equitably. More information can be found at FremontPolice.gov/Engage, including the results of the survey, the status of the engagement activities, and highlights from each meeting when available.

Video recordings of these meetings are available online.
