Congressional Forum

 

A couple of weeks ago, we held our first-ever Congressional Forum to help you get to know your Louisiana Democrats running for office. We brought candidates together to share their platforms and connect with you. And we streamed it all live!

If you live in the 1st or 6th Congressional Districts, now it’s your turn!

Next Thursday, July 26th beginning at 4 p.m., we’re holding a forum featuring Democratic candidates running in the 1st and 6th Congressional Districts. Like our first forum, you can watch from the comfort of your own home – we’ll livestream the event on our Facebook page. It’s a great way to get to know the folks who want to represent you in Washington.

What: 1st and 6th Districts Congressional Forum

When: 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Thursday, July 26th
