A non-partisan community forum hosted by Advancement Project and local leaders will examine the voting experience for African Americans on Wednesday, Oct. 17 starting at 6 p.m. at the COA Goldin Center, 2320 W. Burleigh St. Moderated by Eric Von, host of “Morning Magazine” on Milwaukee’s 1290 WMCS, the panel includes Congresswoman Gwen Moore, Milwaukee Alderwoman Melele Coggs along with several local community activists.
The forum will provide a context and history of voting within the African American community, as well as the effort to make it more difficult for African Americans to cast their ballots.
