The topic of Black community will be discussed in the Indianapolis mayoral debate



Indianapolis, Indiana – There is a mayoral discussion being hosted by the African American Coalition of Indianapolis. It is anticipated that the candidates will outline how they intend to uplift and assist Indianapolis’ Black community.

At five o’clock on Sunday, Republican Jefferson Shreve and Democratic incumbent Mayor Joe Hogsett will speak.

The Indianapolis Recorder’s Facebook and YouTube pages will broadcast the event live. Additionally, Radio One stations will play it.

“I believe that the upcoming mayoral election in Indianapolis carries immense significance for the Black community,” said Robert Shegog, president and CEO of the Indianapolis Recorder. “It represents an opportunity for our voices to be heard and our concerns to be addressed, ultimately shaping the future of our city.”

Aimed at educating and involving African Americans in local, state, and federal politics, AACI is a nonpartisan partnership of African-American civic, social, professional, service, and community groups.

“We are pleased to provide a platform for the mayoral candidates to discuss how the candidates plan to work with the Black community on the most pressing issues in our city,” said Marshawn Wolley, policy director and co-chair of the AACI Debate Committee. “It is imperative that our city’s top leader is not only aware of the issues facing the Black community but also has concrete plans to address them head-on.”

“The most important action each of us as members of the African-American community is to actively participate in our political process,” said Deborah Hearn-Smith, co-chair of AACI Debate Committee. “Most of the decisions affecting our daily lives are decided at the local level.”
