June 2, 2020
SPECIAL MOE TALKS! VIRTUAL TOWN HALL ON WEDNESDAY WILL ADDRESS RACIAL INJUSTICE AND PROTESTS IN ASHEVILLE
Moe Davis, Democratic nominee for Congress in the 11th District, will host a Virtual Town Hall on Zoom, Facebook Live, Twitter Live and Twitch at 7 p.m. on Wednesday to address racial injustice in the wake of George Floyd’s death and the protests in Asheville that have led to a violence and a curfew in the city.
Buncombe County Commissioner Al Whitesides, civil rights leader Dr. Oralene Anderson Graves Simmons, Fletcher Town Council member Preston Blakely and 2020 North Carolina State Senate candidate Cristal Figueroa will join Moe. Additional panelists will be added to the conversation.
“Unfortunately, what happened to George Floyd was not some one-off event that can be dismissed as an anomaly,’’ Davis said. “We’ve got to do better and we’ve got to find a path forward. I’m grateful to the panelists who are joining me and I look forward to listening and learning from them.”
