A coalition of Charlotte area young professional groups, political organizations, grass-roots organizations and nonprofits will be hosting party Presidential nominees and surrogates at a forum to discuss issues impacting Millennials and young professionals. All of the 2016 Presidential campaigns will be represented at this event.
Due to an overwhelming response to this forum, the event will now take place on the campus of Queens University of Charlotte in the Dana Auditorium – 1900 Selwyn Avenue, Charlotte, NC 28207 - on Wednesday November 2, 2016 at 6:00PM EST (Doors will open at 5PM). This event is free to the public and tickets are available on Eventbrite.
The candidates, or their surrogates, will appear back to back and answer questions from moderators and the audience. The audience will be comprised of a diverse group of millennials and voters who reside in the Charlotte, NC/ South Carolina area, and plan to vote in the upcoming 2016 Presidential election.
“I’m really looking forward to this opportunity to discuss why fundamental change has to take place in the United States” said Green Party Vice Presidential candidate Ajamu Baraka. Mr. Baraka will be representing the Jill Stein campaign and the Green Party at the 2016 NC Millennial Voter Presidential Forum. “This forum will give the Presidential candidates and their campaigns an opportunity to hear directly from millennial voters about their concerns, and give them an additional platform motivate more youth voters to participate in the upcoming election” said Andrew J. Fede, JD/MBA, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Young Professionals & Leaders (YPL).
