Virginia Gubernatorial Forum Invitation

Please note the following announcement from the Virginia State Conference.

“You are cordially invited to attend the 2017 Statewide NAACP Virginia Gubernatorial Forum which will be held on Thursday, September 7th at Virginia Union University in historic Coburn Chapel from 6:00PM to 9:00PM. 

This first ever event has been jointly formed by Area Four NAACP Leaders, NAACP Political Action, Criminal Justice and Religious Affairs Committee leaders, various statewide NAACP members and many other community-based leaders from all across Virginia.

As a non-partisan organization, we invited the Virginia Gubernatorial candidates of the two leading political parties. Both candidates have confirmed their attendance and their staffs are now preparing final details for involvement in the Forum. The Forum’s format will allow candid dialog about very important issues and particularly about the concerns of African-American families, voters, leaders, organizations and many other citizens in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The event is open to the public. So all are well-informed, please help by passing this info on to others via e-mail and your social media networks.

Due to high levels of interest in the event, all are encouraged to arrive very early to ensure entry. 

We hope you make plans now to attend this historic and very important event.
