VINELAND â€“ New Jersey Congressional candidate Will Cunningham announced he will host a virtual Youth Town Hall and Q&A over the platform Zoom at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
Cunningham, who grew up in Vineland, said he wanted to make sure young people were heard in this election season and help put their concerns upfront.
“Now, more than ever, it is imperative that young people are leading the way to create true progressive change in this district and in this nation,” Cunningham said. “This town hall will showcase that by building a diverse coalition of youth activists for racial equity, climate justice, access to healthcare, and many other policies, we can create real change.”
Cunningham said it is time for those “who understand the struggles of their community become the ones to represent them.”
“I intimately understand the pain South Jerseyans experience because I lived it,” he said. “In proximity to pain lies the ability to move the needle on policies to bring equity and justice to this country. During this town hall and Q&A, we will discuss the issues that truly matter to young people and how we can usher in bold, progressive change to South Jersey.”
Cunningham is running in the Democratic Party primary July 7 in win a sport to challenge incumbent Republican Jeff Van Drew in the general election in November. Cunningham lost to Van Drew two years ago in the Democratic primary for the seat. Since then, Van Drew made national headlines by switching parties and throwing his support behind Republican President Donald Trump during his impeachment in the House.

“I look forward to an important and engaging discussion,” Cunningham said.
