this Thursday`s C.O.V.E. Ward 5 candidates forum – Kathy Henderson and John Cheeks

Coalition for Voter Empowerment

Is a voter education initiative, sponsored by a coalition of six civic associations of the West End of Ward 5 in Washington, D.C.
Bates, Bloomingdale, Eckington, Edgewood, Hanover, and Stronghold Civic Associations


C.O.V.E. was established in 2006 as a neighborhood coalition to empower and to educate the citizens of Ward 5 within the said civic association boundaries (who were otherwise left out of major outreach and educational opportunities) about the mayoral and Ward 5 Council electoral process.

C.O.V.E. addresses two major factors:

■The historic neglect of the ``West End`` of Ward 5

■The increasing influx of ``new residents`` to the neighborhood – some that may lack general knowledge about the D C politics and its impact on these communities; and the historical change and needs of Ward 5 in particular.
