Hosting a candidate forum can take your efforts to the next level by:
- Making your issue a campaign issue. Hosting a candidate forum puts a spotlight on your organization and your issues.
- Raising the profile of your voters. The community you serve is worth noticing--make sure candidates know who they are!
- Building partnerships and cultivating collaborations. Candidate forums are a great way to team up with other organizations and build fruitful relationships.
- Encouraging civic habits. A forum mobilizes and educates your constituents by connecting them with the candidates; it can also encourage other types of participation!
