Communities Creating Opportunity - Third District Candidate Forum

https://events.mobilizeamerica.io/cco/event/87453/

Date: Thursday, February 28, 2019
Time: 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM
Location: Metropolitan AME Zion Church
Address: 2828 Prospect Ave, Kansas City, Missouri 64128

We are just a few weeks into the new year and the campaign to identify the next Kansas City Mayor and City Council is heating up. Next Thursday, February 28th, we are partnering with Metropolitan AME Zion Church to host a 3rd District candidate forum that will focus on the important issues affecting residents on Kanas City’s east side.

The Kanas City Health Department estimates there is a 13-15 year difference in life expectancy of 3rd District residents and their neighbors west of Troost Ave. Systemic racism, high levels of violence, under-resourced schools, and access to economic opportunity are among the top issues driving the disparities.

It is time to close the opportunity gap! Join us for a community forum with the eight candidates running for the at-large and in-district 3rd district council seats.

Send your questions for the candidates at info@cco.org.
