CRAN 2019 Candidate Forum and Endorsements

On Monday, August 12, CRAN hosted a Candidate Forum for candidates running for Mayor and City Council seats in Charlotte. Over 60 people packed into EastSide Local Eatery to hear from 17 candidates on where they stand on reproductive rights, reproductive healthcare, and reproductive justice. It was a great night filled with rich dialogue!
