ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – On February 27, 2019 a grassroots discussion will take place to listen to and learn from leaders and members of the community on what it will take to earn the Black vote in 2020. “In order to get the attention of black voters, you have to be willing to come into the Black community and listen to our concerns,” says Beverly Burgess, who inspired the event.
WHAT: A free community forum to learn from the black community what will inspire them to vote for a particular party or politician.
WHERE: Callahan Neighborhood Center
101 North Parramore Avenue
Orlando, FL 32801
WHEN: Wednesday, February 27th, 6:30pm.
WHO: Special guests include City of Orlando District 5 Commissioner Regina Hill.
Anyone is invited to attend this free event. A panel of community leaders and members of the faith community will round out the discussion. Leaders from the Democratic, Republican and Libertarian parties as well as other community leaders and faith leaders have been invited to participate.
“We hear a lot about trying to reach the Black community, but rarely followed with action. I felt the best way to learn what is of interest to the black community was to go to them and listen,” said event organizer Randy Ross. “The 2020 election is just around the corner. The time to work is now.” The American Adversaries radio show will serve as a media partner to the event.
