At 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 17, 2020, the Jackson Parish Branch of the NAACP, in partnership with the Democratic Parish Executive Committee (DPEC) will host a candidate’s forum.
The forum is open to all candidates running in the November 3, 2020 general election and will be held at the Charles Garrett Community Center located at 182 Industrial Drive in Jonesboro, Louisiana.
This election has so much at stake, not just for Louisiana, but for the nation as a whole. We have invited all of the candidates and many have responded affirmatively for participating in the forum.
It gives an opportunity for the general public to meet the candidates and most importantly to hear them talk about their plans for the people of Louisiana. DPEC and the NAACP believe that an informed electorate is critical to the future of our nation.
The platform is designed to assist in giving the information you need to make an informed decision when you enter the voting booth. A moderator will ask questions of the candidates. Audience members will have the opportunity to submit questions to possibly be addressed by the candidates.
As we are still dealing with COVID 19, please know that all guidelines for safe distancing will be observed. Everyone entering the facility will be required to wear face masks. Please mark your calendar for this very important, informative candidate’s forum and come out and bring a friend. We hope to see you there.
