Upcoming Event for Portland Residents: the Candidates on Immigrant Concerns

Dear Portland CAFAM members:

Undoubtedly, you’ve seen signs by the side of the road asking you to vote for one candidate or another this November 7th.

But who are they? Why do they matter? And what’s up with the "No on 1" or "Yes on 1" signs?

On Tuesday, October 24th from 7pm-9pm, all the City Council candidates will be at East End Elementary School (195 North St, Portland, ME 04101) to answer your questions with a specific focus on issues facing those who are new to the United States or to Maine.

Councilor Pious Ali, who attended CAFAM’s Moon Festival Celebration, extended an invitation to all Portland CAFAM members (and family and friends) to attend this interactive evening and come with any questions you may have about the upcoming election on November 7th.

This event has no political affiliation and is not sponsored by any candidate. It is purely an educational event to inform and engage Portland’s immigrant community, including Chinese and Chinese-American Portlanders.

What: "Meet the Candidates" Interactive Event
When: Tuesday, October 24th, 7pm-9pm
Where: East End Elementary School (195 North St, Portland, ME 04101)

Please see the attachment in this email for more information about the candidates, ballot questions, and information on absentee voting. Hope to see you on Tuesday!

Sincerely,
Ophelia
