Coalition Wants to Work With Candidates on Issues in Low-Income Communities

Oct 8, 2019

Wednesday evening, October 9, a coalition of Knoxville community groups will ask mayoral candidates Eddie Mannis and Indya Kincannon to support efforts to improve life in low-income neighborhoods. WUOT’s Brandon Hollingsworth recently spoke with two of the forum’s organizers, LaKenya Middlebrook of the NAACP, and Rick Held of Socially Equal Energy Efficient Development. Held told Hollingsworth the forum is the result of some surprising findings about Knoxville’s low-income residents.
