Candidate Forums

This NOVEMBER 6, Los Angeles County will see a record number of local municipal (city council) and school board elections in addition to the federal and state midterms.

 

In order to support and assist the voters of LA County, Arts for LA often partners with key nonpartisan leaders in Los Angeles to hold Candidate Forums that facilitate respectful and issue-based conversations on topics that are important to voters.

With over 88 cities and 81 school districts, Arts for LA cannot realistically host candidate forums for every race. For this reason, we also frequently share any information we receive about nonpartisan candidate forums happening across the County. If you know of a candidate forum for the fall 2018 elections, please notify us using the form below so we can add the information to our calendar and let other Arts Advocates know!

TAKE ACTION:

Attend a Candidate FORUM in your community and ASK CANDIDATES ARTS & CULTURE QUESTIONS

Our goal is to foster respectful, nonpartisan dialogue about issues relating to arts and culture. If you plan to attend a candidate forum in your community, be sure to ask or submit a written question that will get candidates thinking and talking about their vision for the arts and culture landscape of your community.

If you are planning on attending a Candidate Forum in your community and would like more information about how forums work and how to engage candidates in conversation, you can reach out to Arts for LA's Civic Engagement Coordinator, Susan L. Petrella, at associate@artsforla.org.
