The Jamaica Branch of the NAACP will host a candidate forum for those seeking election in the 29th, 31st, 32nd and 33rd state Assembly districts, as well as the 10th and 14th Senate Districts beginning at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 6 at Majority Baptist Church in St. Albans.

The event is co-sponsored by the Epsilon Pi Omega chapter of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., and the Zeta Zeta Lambda chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, Inc.

The NAACP is billing the forum as an opportunity for residents to meet candidates.

“NAACP members and others fought and died for the right to vote in America,” the NAACP said in a statement. “Our participation in this process ensures that their dying was not in vain. The local elections are paramount to the overall quality of life and well-being of our community.”

Members of the community are invited to attend, and will be welcome to ask questions of the candidates.

Majority Baptist Church is located at 115-21 Farmers Blvd. Further information is available from the NAACP at (718) 723-3653.
