#D34Vote Congressional Candidates Forum: Indigenous Youth, Social Justice and the Trump Tribulations

Cast your Youth and Family Vote here!

We are honored to invite our community to a youth-focused Congressional Candidates Forum presented by the Student Council at Anahuacalmecac International University Preparatory. Candidates each present an opening statement (1 minute) and closing remarks (3 minutes). Also, candidates will respond to questions generated by our student community. Before the forum, we invite you to participate in action-reception by creating posters, postcards, letters and digital smoke signals addressed to POTUS & members of Congress about issues you are concerned with.  

Following the forum, Ollin Law will provide a free legal clinic for our community, which you are also welcome to join.  

We look forward to hearing from you!
