Who is running for Annapolis City Council and why does it matter?
Action Annapolis in partnership with Maryland Hall’s ArtReach Program and Annapolis artist/activist Comacell Brown, Jr., is developing a video project, #GoVoteAnnapolis, which will feature interviews with candidates running to serve on the Annapolis City Council.
These videos will be posted in early September on the Action Annapolis YouTube page, and distributed throughout the City leading up to the September 21st, 2021 primary city elections, followed by the general election on November 2, 2021. These videos are being filmed by young filmmakers from ArtReach and are designed to help all Annapolitans get to know their ward's candidates for city council.
Action Annapolis is not only focused on voters getting to know their candidates better—what their priorities are and how they intend to address them—but is also interested in helping Annapolitans learn what voters in neighboring communities are most concerned about.
“We know that the more involved people are with the elections, the more likely they will be to advocate for their and their community’s needs. For many, the local elections seem far removed from the realities of their daily lives. Our hope is that we can help convey to every Annapolitan that they have the power to influence campaigns, candidates and policy,” says Sonia Feldman, spokesperson for Action Annapolis.
Please help us by making a donation of any size to support the work of these young artists who are committed to helping our community become more engaged in the city elections and empowered in local issues and outcomes.
