AARP fights for the issues that matter most!
Yesterday, AARP Illinois joined the Bronzeville Neighborhood Collaborative for a 4th Ward Candidates Debate where contenders sparred for over healthcare, employment, safety, security and education.
Chicago’s WVON radio personality Cliff Kelly moderated a distinguished panel that included appointed Alderman Sophia King who was endorsed by President Obama, along with candidates Ebony Lucas, Gregory Seal Livingston, Gerald Scott McCarthy and Marcellus Moore.
AARP’s Ruby Haughton-Pitts told the standing room only crowd that informed voters makes politicians more accountable and that makes communities stronger.
The 4th Ward debate is just one example of how AARP Illinois advocates on behalf of communities like Bronzeville.
