Why sharing P.I.E. can be a game changer for young adults in today’s political climate?
On Sunday March 5th 2017, a group of Caribbean entrepreneurs in the Atlanta area came together to put on a political forum targeted at Young Adults in the Caribbean community.
The focus of the discussion was Politics, Immigration and Economics. The forum was a rallying cry for activism among Caribbean young adults some of whom are misinformed, under-informed or simply frustrated with some changes happening in the current political climate.
The event featured some note-worthy panelists in the community including:
- Rafer Johnson (Mayoral Candidate for Fulton County)
- Linda Pritchett (Candidate for City Council-District 7)
- Safiya Byars (Immigration Attorney)
- Skeeter Jo Francois (Immigration Attorney)
- Austin Thompson (Small Business Consultant)
- Erika Mitchell (Candidate for Atlanta City Council-District 10)
- Donna McLeod (Former Candidate-State House Representative-District 105)
Each of the panelist had some insightful recommendations on how each of the highlighted topics can be used to create more political awareness and activism within the Caribbean community. It was a non-partisan information sharing session that touched on key issues impacting the community and actionable next steps for moving forward.
