Join us on July 24, 2022 at Shiloh Baptist Church from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm for a "1,000 Strong Voter Registration & At-Large Candidate Forum." Bring your family, friends, and neighbors to register to vote and learn about the candidates. We encourage all Trentonians to let their voice be heard and to become engaged in the political process. The candidate forum is cohosted by the Trenton Branch of the NAACP and will be facilitated by community activist, Caitlin Fair. All At-Large candidates will have the opportunity to introduce themselves and take questions from the public. It's our goal to increase voter registration and to provide residents with an opportunity to learn more about the hopeful At-Large candidates before they cast their ballot on November 8, 2022. Too much is at stake when it comes to running the city to sit idly by and not exercise your right to vote. For more information email Kenneth@TrentonJournal or the TrentonNAACP@Gmail.com.
Planting seeds of hope
A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend the 2022 SEED Heal the City Scholarship Brunch at the Lobby Club. The event presented high school college bound seniors in the Mercer County area with a $500 financial award to use towards family travel, lodging, and books for school. "This is our way of showing the students and their parents that they care," said SEED Director, Stacy Heading. Trenton native Dr. Reggie Walker was the keynote speaker for the brunch who inspired the room with a heartfelt speech about planting seeds in fertile soil. It was a great way to start off a Sunday morning. As I looked around the room and saw so many Trentonians encouraging our youth, it reminded me of how important it is to highlight these stories coming out of our city and to keep uplifting those who are doing positive work to help push our city forward.
