Nonpartisan Erie County Sheriff Candidate Forum
May 24, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0
VOICE Buffalo is excited to host a nonpartisan Primary Candidate’s Forum for Erie County Sheriff.
In 2021, we have the opportunity to elect equity, better quality of care for detainees, as well as safer policies. This is the year of the Activated Vote, and our power lies in the Unity of our voice! We must reform the majority of the policies and procedures that have allowed the murder and torture of innocent lives in the Erie County Holding Center. We must also stop Howard’s final act of supremacy: relocating the Downtown Holding Center to the Alden Correctional Facility. In 2021, we have the opportunity to elect a sheriff that is dedicated to the implementation of the needed reforms that will protect detainees and ensure they are receiving adequate care and their most basic needs are met.
Join VOICE Buffalo at their nonpartisan Primary Candidates forum to discuss these and other issues that greatly affect our community with the candidates.
The forum, moderated by Spectrum News Reporter Brandon Lewis, will be held in the Downtown Buffalo and Erie County Public Library on Monday, May 24th from 6pm-8pm and stream live on zoom, YouTube, and Facebook.
