Interfaith group holds candidate forum
Tuesday, February 1, 2022 by Tai Moses
A gathering of more than 300 Central Texas Interfaith leaders and clergy will hold a nonpartisan “accountability” session online with major Republican and Democratic candidates for U.S. congressional districts 35 and 37. Candidates including Eddie Rodriguez, Greg Casar, Rebecca Viagran, and Lloyd Doggett will present their views on issues like living wages, education, housing affordability, homelessness, immigration and public safety. Lydia Moore, a CTI leader with Ebenezer Baptist Church, explained that the pandemic “has exacerbated already difficult economic and health circumstances for all communities, though low-income communities, communities of color, and immigrant communities have been among the hardest-hit. We believe it’s important these candidates hear from these communities and that we will hold them to their commitments if they are elected.” CTI plans to follow up the event with a nonpartisan get-out-the-vote effort that includes phone banking and block walks. RSVP here. Sunday, Feb. 6, 3-4:30 p.m., via Zoom.
