A group called the Millennial Voter Engagement Initiative will host "Millennials Matter: Mayoral Forum" at Cafe Istanbul at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15 — and the event will feature a performance by Big Freedia.

LaToya Cantrell, Troy Henry, Michael Bagneris, Hashim Walters, Manny Chevrolet Bruno, Derrick O’Brien Martin, Johnese Smith and Tommie Vassel are among the mayoral candidates who have pledged to attend, according to the group, with more to follow. Whether any of them will twerk for votes remains to be seen.

"Millennials will vote on the two candidates they feel best represents our platform," organizer Clarke Perkins said in a statement. "Those candidates will then be officially endorsed by MoVE Initiative":
MoVE hosted the Panel to Find Our Paths on August 10, 2017. Around 90 millennials gathered at Cafe Istanbul to discuss the issues they face in New Orleans, voting on a platform for consideration by city leaders and candidates running for public office. The five most important issues for millennials voting in the poll included public safety/gun violence, economic growth/jobs, healthcare, liveable wages, and K-12 Education – these will be the main focus of the forum.
The event is free, but attendees must register for tickets.
