Join us during the Democratic National Convention for a non-partisan Town Hall at which we will uplift the concerns of young voters of color. With the backdrop of the coordinated efforts to suppress the vote of people of color, the elderly, the young, the disabled, and the poor across numerous states, this Town Hall will energize, educate and empower young voters.
The Town Hall will be moderated by Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr., President and CEO of the Hip Hop Caucus; speakers include, Barbara Arnwine, President and Executive Director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law; Kevin Powell, nationally renowned activist, writer, and speaker; Big Mike, Recording Artist of the group Day 26, formed by P. Diddy; Carrie Cook, local community activist and founder of the Youth EmpowHERment movement providing opportunities for teens and girls. The event will be hosted by Nolimit Larry host of The Nolimit Larry & The Morning Maddhouse show on CBS Radio’s WPEG Power 98 in Charlotte. Charlotte-based Recording Artists Bettie Grind and Mr. 704, along with A Dot, will be hosting the Live-stream, and spoken word poet Bluz will give a performance.
