Inter-Neighborhood Cooperation will partner again with the League of Women Voters of Denver to organize election forums to be presented by our partnership known as Denver Decides through Denver 8TV for the very important November 8 2016 elections. Due to budget reasons, all of the forums will be conducted at the Denver8TV studio downtown and not at community locations as in the past. The dates are not finalized yet, but they will be confirmed and publicized in the near future.

We need all INC members and all registered neighborhood organizations to help in this effort
