It's crunch time. Over the past week, we have hosted candidates in the two most biggest elections on Long Island this fall – Suffolk County Executive and Nassau District Attorney – and mobilized nearly two hundred community members from both Counties to raise their issues to the candidates, and show that our communities are engaged and mobilized to vote in a big way on November 3rd.
If you missed either forum, you can check out photos from the Suffolk County Executive forum here, and from our Nassau Policing & Justice forum here. Both forums were part of our partnership with Long Island Wins and Noticia, Growing a Diverse Long Island which, since 2011, has been hosting candidate and issue forums in working-class communities of color, raising up the voices and issues that matter to our communities. With these events, we were joined by over 20 co-sponsoring organizations.
Thanks to all our partners, and especially to the candidates and community members who came out to raise up their voices and pledge to #Vote4Respect. With just days to go before Election Day, we're stronger than ever!
