This Sunday, several social justice groups will host an event to connect voters with the democratic process and their candidates. Those involved: Kentucky Jobs with Justice, Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky, Kentucky Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, the Fairness Campaign, the Anne Braden Institute For Social Justice Research of University of Louisville, the Hispanic Latino Coalition, Louisville ReEntry Task Force, NAACP, et al.
‘Power To The People Jazz & Spoken Word Fest For Voter Madness’ will be held from 12:00 Noon to 7:00 P.M. at Baxter Square Park, 12th & Jefferson Streets. It’s free, open to the public and refreshments will be provided. So you should go.
But before you do, take a look at this list of scheduled speakers:
- Greg Fischer
- Jackie Green
- Darryl Owens
- Reggie Meeks
- Tom Riner
- Erica Lee Williams
- Sheila Collins
- Steve Imhoff
- Diane Porter
- Attica Scott
- Daniel Smithson
Notice the glaring absence of Hal Heiner? Apparently he doesn’t take social justice seriously.
So let’s start the clock on watching Hal lose to one of the worst candidates the Democratic Party has put forth in decades.
I emailed the Heiner campaign requesting comment, but have received no response.
