The organization Philly Women Rally has invited me, Jocolyn Bowser-Bostick, as the endorsed Green Party candidate for Lt. Governor in PA to participate in their political forum of announced PA Lt. Governor candidates. Philly Women Rally’s stated mission is to advocate for women’s rights and political involvement in the Greater Philadelphia region. They are committed to embracing women’s differences, amplifying women’s voices to empower them and fighting for their rights and civil liberties. Because Philly Women Rally is voter education-motivated this forum is structured as a “Public Service” conversation between candidates and the moderator will ask questions of the candidates who will be seated around a table on the stage. The moderator will ensure each candidate gets to speak/answer for 90 seconds, on each round of a posed question which will last about 15 minutes. They will have seven rounds of questions, with a final eighth round for closing remarks by each candidate. The questions will be on women’s rights issues related to sexual harassment, reproductive rights, equal pay, equal rights for LGBTQ members of the community, racial equality and gun control. I am happy to participate in this discussion and enlighten more people about the Green Party and how its values and solutions can help solve problems in the aforementioned areas.
Six of the ten Lt. Governor candidates who will be in either the Democratic or Republican primaries have confirmed that they will be at this forum. People have the opportunity to have their question asked of the panel by submitting it to [email protected] if it concerns any of these subjects: sexual harassment, reproductive rights, equal pay, racial and LGBTQ community inequalities and gun control/reform.
This event is named “Marching to the Polls--- the Middle Way!” and is being held from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 10th at the Norristown High School Auditorium, 1900 Eagle Drive, Norristown, PA 19403.
