(Columbia, SC) – The Democratic Black Caucus of South Carolina will host a Millennial Voter Meet and Greet on Saturday, June 22, 2019, from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. at Truth of Columbia located at 1004 Gervais Street, Columbia, SC 29201. This event is being hosted in conjunction with the South Carolina Democratic Party Convention and is designed to create an opportunity for candidates to talk directly with millennial voters.
The meet and greet will give candidates an opportunity to give brief formal remarks followed by time to mingles with attendees. Candidates will also be able to reach those not in attendance by participating in a podcast/ Facebook live stream with millennial voter influencers and Johnnie Cordero, Chairman of the Democratic Black Caucus.
“Millennial voters, particularly black millennial voters are a voting bloc that we cannot afford to overlook. The oldest Millennials are in their late thirties now. They have careers, they own homes, and they’re raising families of their own. So, issues like the excessive use of force against black citizens and their children, economic equality, and other policies we’re requiring candidates to address, truly do matter to this demographic,” said Cordero.
This event is free and open to all members of the public. However, space will be limited and those interested in attending are encouraged to arrive early.
