People Say! Power of the Vote Rally
Sat, Nov 11, 2017
2:30 – 5:00 pm
Stallings Playground 1600 Gentilly Blvd.
The coming election is extremely important for the citizens of New Orleans; our leaders for the next several years will be determined. The primary election saw very low voter turnout. To increase participation, the Community Get Out the Vote Rally and Mayoral Town Hall was created. There is a need for the candidates and the community to engage in an accessible, informative, and inclusive setting.
The Get Out the Vote Rally immediately prior to the Mayoral Town Hall will feature inspirational/motivational speakers from the community to speak on the power of the vote and why voting matters. Voter registration tabling to sign up future voters, community partners, and refreshments will be on site.
The Community Mayoral Town Hall hosts both Mayoral candidates and Moderator Oliver Thomas. The candidates will have an opportunity to address concerns and answer questions from a community panel and the moderator. Questions are based on pre-submitted questions to the presenter’s committee.
We look forward to a truly citizen-driven event that will inspire, inform and energize the community!
