Event description

Description

Community advocacy groups All in Denver, A+ Colorado, Colorado Coalition for the Homeless and Interfaith Alliance of Colorado are joining forces on a mayoral forum – or “anti-forum” as they call it. The groups are seeking to engage community members who feel left out of or dis-enfranchised by the political process by hosting a forum that is inclusive, welcoming, and fun!

What's this all about?
We have a big election coming up in May 2019. What, an election in May?????
Yes, we know that's a little confusing. Every four years, Denver hosts Mayoral and City Council elections in May. So let's get ready, and get informed about who wants to be our next Mayor.

If you're anything like us, you've never been to a candidate forum; or, if you have, you may have left feeling confused and unsure who to vote for (or you may have been bored to tears). Sure, politics is serious business. But we can have some fun while we're learning!

Have fun. Get informed. Get ready to vote. At the Mayoralpalooza, you'll meet the Denver Mayoral candidates, learn more about their priorities, and get to know them as people, not just politicians.

What to Expect
This isn’t your grandpa’s candidate forum – but rest assured, grandpas and everyone else who is interested is encouraged to attend.

The bar will be open, a DJ will be spinning, munchies will be served, and you, your friends, and the candidates will play some of your favorite games with a political twist! During the second hour, we'll meet in the movie theater, where our moderator and the audience will ask the candidates questions about how they plan to make Denver an equitable, inclusive city for all of us. Expect some surprises and some zany antics along the way.


*Conduct*
It's not easy being a candidate. And it doesn't feel good to feel excluded from the political scene. Our hope is that we all come to this event in the spirit of community. Let's get to know each other and our candidates by sharing stories, having a laugh, and seeing each other's humanity.

The event is FREE! Some food and beverages provided. Pay-for-your-own-cocktails.

***Space is limited to the first 240 RSVPs.***
