(Nonpartisan) Primary Candidates’ Forum for Erie Co Sheriff

May 24, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Hybrid: Both at Buffalo & Erie Co Central Public Library, and on zoom/youtube/Facebook. Organized by VOICE Buffalo; cosponsored by Partnership for the Public Good and the WNY Peace Center.

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 our 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.
