Wednesday, October 7 • 6:30pm • Longmont Public Library
We’ll have a short meet and greet at 6:30 before the forum so you can get to know a few of this year’s candidates for Longmont’s City Council. Then, we’ll have a forum for 5 of the 7 candidates (as of this writing) with opponents.
Come see where each of the candidates stand on the issues. We’re busy preparing questions and will gladly consider questions from YOU as well. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to submit yours. The audience on October 7 will also have an opportunity to submit questions.
Please join us…and please, bring a friend!

“…they have something to say to each of us in their death…They have something to say to every politician who has fed his constituents with the stale bread of hatred and the spoiled meat of racism. …They say to each of us, black and white alike, that we must substitute courage for caution. They say to us that we must be concerned not merely about who murdered them, but about the system, the way of life, the philosophy which produced the murderers. Their death says to us that we must work passionately and unrelentingly for the realization of the American dream. …These tragic deaths may lead our nation to substitute an aristocracy of character for an aristocracy of color. …we must not despair. …we must not lose faith in our white brothers. Somehow we must believe that the most misguided among them can learn to respect the dignity and the worth of all human personality. …And if one will hold on, he will discover that God walks with him and that God is able to lift you from the fatigue of despair to the buoyancy of hope, and transform dark and desolate valleys into sunlit paths of inner peace.” — MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR., Eulogy for the Martyred Children, September 18, 1963
WHAT: Community members will take part in a three-day fast in Denver, Washington, D.C.—in front of Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters—& cities across the U.S.
QUE: Miembros de la comunidad participaran en un ayuno de 3 días en Denver, Washington DC.—enfrente de la sede de Inmigración— y ciudades en todo EEUU
WHY: Since 2011, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has failed to implement policies, called “prosecutorial discretion”, which were designed to give Immigration agents and the Chief Counsel’s office the power to keep many people out of deportation.
PORQUE: Desde 2001, Inmigración ha fracasado en implementar políticas, que se llama “discreción fiscal”, que fueron deseados para dar agentes de Inmigración y los fiscales el poder de parar le deportación de muchas personas.
