This weekend the focus is on economic issues important to the black community for some of the Democratic presidential candidates.
A forum in Charleston, South Carolina, on Saturday, June 15, is attracting Sens. Cory Booker of New York and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts as well as Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, and a former Texas congressman, Beto O’Rourke.
Booker, Buttigieg and O’Rourke also plan to meet with striking McDonald’s workers in the Charleston area who want the company to allow its employees to organize.
