Georgetown NAACP Banquet

gIMG_5414Our friends at the Scott County/ Georgetown chapter of the NAACP held their annual banquet last night, bringing out many great friends of social justice organizing and local politicians including Charlie Hoffman and Congressman Ben Chandler.

Over 100 people participated overall and proceeds of the event went to the local NAACP scholarship fund.

Much of the focus of the program was on voting, aimed primarily at the November elections, but also on Tuesday's primary election. 

We passed out about 250 local voter guides to people at the event who pledged to get them in people's hands at church this morning or in other ways leading up to the primary.  

A couple of the speakers also mentioned our campaign to restore voting rights to former felons who have served their time - and other campaigns to overcome barriers to voting. 

Many thanks to our friends at NAACP for hosting a great event and inviting us.
