ThisisReno is partnering with The Holland Project, the Reno News & Review and KWNK Radio for a series of candidate forums, called “Speak Youth to Power.” The forums are designed connect youth to local political issues, but everyone is welcome to attend.
The first is tonight at the Washoe County Library. Seating is limited and registration is required, but anybody can watch the forum online. Stay tuned at ThisisReno’s Facebook page to watch the livestream.
The non-partisan forums are open to all candidates running for the Washoe Board of County Commissioners, Reno City Council, and Reno Mayor.
The Speak Youth to Power Forums will center around issues affecting or impacting young voters (with young adults serving as participants and moderators). This is not a debate but a forum for candidates to address issues relevant to the race. Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions as well.
Journalists from the Reno News & Review and ThisisReno will also be participating, including livestreaming the event by video to social media and recording for re-broadcast on KWNK.
The events are free but with a suggested donation of $1 for students and $3 general. Proceeds will benefit KWNK, a non-profit community radio station.
