The East Harlem Community Alliance, a consortium of over 200 organizations in East Harlem, will host a virtual Mayoral Forum.
The Forum will be followed by a panel discussion on Monday, May 10, 2021, starting at 6 p.m.
The event will be broadcast live on Manhattan Neighborhood Network and Facebook.
Mayoral candidates Eric Adams, Kathryn Garcia, Ray McGuire, Dianne Morales, Scott Stringer, and Jocelyn Taylor will participate in the event.
“East Harlem is one of the most underserved communities in New York City, and so it is vitally important that we hear directly from the candidates how they plan to address the needs of this community,” said David Nocenti, Chair of the East Harlem Community Alliance and Executive Director of Union Settlement.
After the candidate forum, a distinguished panel of representatives from major East Harlem organizations will discuss the issues addressed during the event. The panelists will be:
- Shirley Annan (Ministry Programs Coordinator, Bethel Gospel Assembly)
- Ana Chireno (Director of Government and Community Affairs, El Museo del Barrio)
- Erika Donovan Estades (COO & General Counsel, East Harlem Council for Human Services)
- Walter Roberts (Executive Director, Hope Community Inc.)
The forum will air on Manhattan Neighborhood News (MNN) and on the MNN’s website and Facebook page.
