As you may know, our campaign is entirely grassroots funded, which means we depend on passionate volunteers like you to keep us going! Early Voting is only 18 days away so it's more important than ever for us to get out there and speak to voters. That's why I am humbly asking you to sign up for one or more volunteer opportunities that are available this week.

Newburgh City Council Primary Election Forum
Thursday, May 2021
As we approach the Democratic Primary Election on June 22, 2021, the NAACP Newburgh-Highland Fall (NBHF) Branch in partnership with the Blacc Vanilla Cafe and Blacc Vanilla Community Foundation will host a virtual Democratic primary forum to enable the public to learn about the candidates running for office:
The Virtual Newburgh City Council Primary Forum will be held on Thursday, May 20, 2021 (6:30-8:30pm). The NBHF NAACP has acquired a longstanding reputation for conducting nonpartisan professional candidate forums for every level of government. Forums give voters the opportunity to judge if their candidates are knowledgeable on important issues pertaining to the office they are seeking, and it gives office seekers a chance to present their positions directly to the voters. We encourage all voters to attend. Your vote is your voice!
Please register for the forum using the following link:
If you would like to submit questions for the candidates, email them no later than May 20th by 2 pm to or
