The Community Arts Experience and the county chapter of the NAACP have announced that they will be co-hosting a candidates forum in the coming weeks. The forum will provide an opportunity for local political candidates to engage with members of the community and address important issues facing the region.
The forum will be held at a local community center and will feature candidates running for various local offices, including mayor, city council, and school board. The event is open to the public, and attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the candidates and learn more about their positions on key issues.
The Community Arts Experience is a nonprofit organization that seeks to promote arts education and cultural enrichment in the region. The organization has partnered with the county chapter of the NAACP to organize the forum as part of its ongoing efforts to promote civic engagement and community involvement.
In a statement, the president of the county chapter of the NAACP said, “We are excited to partner with the Community Arts Experience on this important event. We believe that it is crucial for community members to have the opportunity to engage with political candidates and learn more about their plans for our region.”
The candidates forum is part of a broader effort by both organizations to promote voter engagement and participation in the democratic process. The organizations have also been working to increase voter registration and turnout among historically underrepresented communities in the region.
The joint candidates forum is expected to be well-attended, and both organizations are hopeful that it will help to foster a more engaged and informed electorate in the region.
