PEOPLE FIRST is an MSPJC supported partnership with residents and activists working in the Binghampton community to raise voter turn out during elections and assist in long term resident-driven grassroots community organizing after the elections end.
For the past month groups of activists and Binghampton residents have been canvassing door to door ,talking with residents and neighbors about the issues that they care about.
This Saturday, Sept 10, People First is hosting a Community Forum for candidates in the City Council District Nine Position 1 race. Both City Councilman Kemp Conrad and Candidate Paul Shaffer have been invited to attend. Both candidates are invited to participate in a forum where the majority of the speaking will be done by voters sharing their concerns and their desires for their community. We do so hope you all will attend this first step in an ongoing and sustained grassroots effort in Binghampton.
We are inviting District 9 candidates to participate in a community forum where Memphians can share their experiences, concerns, and questions with those who are interested in representing us on the City Council.
We want our neighborhoods to set the agenda for city government, and candidates will have an opportunity to pledge their support for the People’s Agenda an agenda that puts the People First!
