The 15 candidates running for City Council will gather tonight for a bilingual forum held by Tenants and Workers United and Grassroots Alexandria, according to a news release.
The forum, which will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the TWU parking lot at 3801 Mt. Vernon Ave., aims to amplify the needs of the city’s working-class residents and “ensure community members … have an opportunity to hear from candidates about their platforms,” according to the release.
Available in English and with a Spanish translation, the event is the first and only bilingual forum this election season.
While the event will be held in-person today, attendees are encouraged to join virtually via Facebook Live in order to maintain social distancing standards. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/TenantsandWorkers.
