About The Iowa Brown & Black Presidential Forum

The Iowa Brown & Black Presidential Forum is an element of Urban Dreams’ non-partisan Project V.O.T.E. (Voting Opportunities Through Education). It is the nation’s only presidential forum in which all candidates have the opportunity to answer essential concerns of Latinos and African-Americans. This non-partisan event has figured prominently in the Iowa caucuses. It is recognized as the oldest continuous minority forum for presidential candidates in America and one of the longest-running presidential forums in the nation. Founded in 1984, this groundbreaking event has brought many Presidential candidates, including President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Edwards, John Kerry, Al Gore, George McGovern, Walter Mondale and John Glenn, to Iowa.
