Denton’s chapters of the NAACP and LULAC combined forces for a candidate forum Monday night in Southeast Denton.
The two civil rights groups found that they had common interests in education, health care, immigration reform and minimum wage, according to Al Sanchez, of the League of United Latin American Citizens. They invited all the party candidates for county, state and federal offices from Denton County to the event and asked each of them five questions over those shared concerns.
“What better way to lift our communities,” Sanchez said. “We still have lots to learn about these candidates.”
He told the crowd of about 50 in attendance that the groups plan to work together in the future.
