All five invited candidates are confirmed to attend.
Toni Preckwinkle, Susana Mendoza, Amara Enyia, Lori Lightfoot, and Paul Vallas will be there on Monday. We have limited participation to five candidates in order to have a more meaningful and substantive debate. Candidates were invited based on viability (determined by polling) and enthusiasm (determined by a vote by text of members and activists).
There will be a free bus leaving from and returning to the south side.
Where: National Association of Letter Carriers, Branch 11 - 3850 S. Wabash Ave, Chicago
When: Meet at 5 p.m. You do not need to RSVP for the bus. Seats are first come, first served.
The forum will be moderated by Evan Moore of the Chicago Sun-Times.
Read Evan's powerful recent piece on policing and public safety here.
Audience members will be able to submit questions.
Questions may be submitted to all candidates or to one candidate in particular. Time is limited and we won't be able to get to all questions, but organizers will prioritize questions that cover a range of topics related to African-American displacement.
Child care and Spanish-language interpretation will be available.
Doors open at 5:45 pm.
