The candidates will give opening and closing statements outlining their platforms and answer questions submitted by attendees. The forum will be moderated by Helen Hutchison, California State President of the League of Women Voters. The co-presenting organizations will submit topics and questions of importance and concern to the communities they serve, including the need for civic engagement and education, equity and social justice.
