The Clark County Black Caucus, NAACP Las Vegas, the ACLU of Nevada and GoUrbanLasVegas.com are joining forces to engage and educate Southern Nevada voters about this year’s elections with a series of community forums.
The first event in the March Madness series will occur at 6 p.m. tonight at Brinley Middle School (2480 Maverick St.), where candidates for North Las Vegas mayor Pat Spearman, Pamela Goynes-Brown, Robert Taylor and Nathan Atkins will hear from the community and discuss the race.
Additional events will engage and educate voters about the Clark County races for sheriff and district attorney. Campaign signs will not be permitted at the events.
“Voting is very powerful, and we are working hard to give the African American community opportunities to engage in the political process. Each of these local races will have a big impact on our community, and Southern Nevada voters will benefit from hearing from the candidates at these neutral forums,” said Clark County Black Caucus Chair Yvette Williams.
“We’re happy to collaborate with our community partners on these public education events and to engage with the community. The more voters understand their rights, the issues, and where the candidates stand, the better it is for Southern Nevada,” said ACLU of Nevada Executive Director Athar Haseebullah.
