The “Rally for Civic Engagement” is Lowell Votes’ premiere annual event in which we invite all candidates running for office that will appear on a ballot in Lowell to give a short speech and then talk one-on-one with rally attendees. The 2016 Rally will be held on Friday, September 2, 6:30 pm on JFK Plaza in front of Lowell City Hall.
The event will feature nonprofit and advocacy group tables, music, and decorations in a festival-like setting. The new food truck “Let’s Roll” will be there. As a fun incentive, candidates will be given sashes and can earn badges by talking to the tabling groups and learning about the issues they care about.
Please join the event on Facebook and share the word!
