WaPo's Clinton Yates will moderate the forum for young District residents. Youth will pose questions to mayoral contenders on the following topics:
- Foster Care
- Violence and police relations
"There are lots of candidate forums but this is the only one designed to shine a spotlight on teen concerns and engage teens in the political process. The candidates and teens can look forward to having a frank and respectful dialogue about important issues," said Brenda Rhodes Miller, executive director of DC Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy.
