The People's Forum: A Discussion with Louisville's Mayoral Candidates
Wednesday, January 20, 2010, 11:04 am
For the first time in the
21st century Louisville is about to elect someone other than Jerry
Abramson for Mayor. With this opportunity comes the challenge of determining
which candidate will be the most likely to uphold your constitutional
priorities. You have questions and concerns for the future of the Derby City;
here is your chance to voice them!
The ACLU of Kentucky is
joining nine other social justice organizations to present “The People’s
Forum,” a mayoral candidate discussion on Tuesday, February 2, 6-8 p.m. at the
Metro United Way Building. Candidates will answer questions pre-submitted by
each group on issues important to their communities. Audience members will have
the opportunity to submit questions that, depending upon time, will also be
incorporated into the Forum. A reception will follow from 8-9 p.m. in which
candidates can meet and greet with their potential future constituents.
Admission to “The People’s Forum” is free, and granted on a first come, first
served basis. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.
of “The People’s Forum” include: ACLU of Kentucky, Community Farm Alliance,
Fairness Campaign, Hispanic/Latino Coalition, Jefferson County Chapter of
Kentuckians For The Commonwealth, Kentucky Alliance Against Racist and
Political Repression, Kentucky Jobs with Justice, Making Connections Network,
Metropolitan Housing Coalition, and Women In Transition.
