Knoxville Mayoral Forum on Social Justice

Redeeming Hope Ministries, the publisher of Knoxville’s street paper "The Amplifier," is proud to announce a mayoral forum and debate focusing on social justice issues concerning Knoxville’s homeless community. The event will be held at Redeemer Church, located at 1642 Highland Ave, on Wed., Aug. 10th beginning at 10:00 AM.

The forum is intended to continue The Amplifier’s mission of giving a voice to the less fortunate in our community. This forum shall serve to introduce new homeless voters to the mayoral candidates and provide an opportunity for them to submit questions that directly relate and impact them as members of Knoxville’s homeless and formerly homeless population.

The forum will be moderated by Hubert Smith, host of "The Hubert Smith Radio Show" broadcast each Sunday on WUTK-FM 90.3.

The forum is expected to last one hour. The questions will be generated by recently registered homeless voters, members and volunteers at Redeeming Hope Ministries, and homeless vendors and volunteers of "The Amplifier."
