This event is SOLD OUT, but you can join the conversation on Twitter: #ALDIALive
AL DÍA News Media hosts a unique conversation leading up to the 2015 Philadelphia Mayoral Race!
This conversation will break the wall between the candidates, the media, and the public. The mayoral candidates will converse with a selection of the city’s leading journalists in front of a diverse audience. The candidates will receive questions primarily from the journalists, but also from the audience, who will submit questions for the candidates via Twitter during the event.
Featured journalists will include:
- Solomon Jones (900AM WURD)
- Shai Ben-Yaacov (WHYY)
- Helen Ubiñas (Philadelphia Daily News)
- Steve Bo-Le Yuan (Metro Chinese Weekly)
- Chris Krewson (Billy Penn)
- Ana Gamboa (AL DÍA News)
This event will highlight the lack of representation for diverse communities in Philadelphia, touching upon the disconnect between City Hall and the public.
If you’re a Philadelphian, join our audience and participate in this one-of-a-kind opportunity to let your voice be heard in front of our city’s next mayor.
This event will take place at Pipeline Philly, a multi-purpose open workspace, located across the street from City Hall.
A networking reception will take place from 5-6pm. Fruits, cheeses, wine and beer will be served. The conversation will begin at 6pm.
Dynamic discussion, networking possibilities, City Hall, and the candidates: Become part of the evening that will help shape the 2015 Philadelphia mayoral race!

AL DÍA News Media is a dynamic news organization based in Philadelphia, with an increasingly national scope and reach. Our multi-platform news media organization showcases the fullness of the Latino experience in the United States — fostering engagement and driving a new American narrative.
AL DÍA empowers Latinos to write their own story and is the only news media organization that defines the Latino experience proactively. AL DÍA offers readers a unique perspective in the midst of the cluttered media landscape with its national news website available in English and Spanish, a newspaper, English-language events including media panels, political conversations, film screenings, and other ambitious content initiatives.
The content provided by AL DÍA across platforms actively impacts the lives of those who read it. Latinos find themselves fully represented; businesses learn about the fastest growing demographic in the country; and non-Latinos are engaged by content that doesn’t simply expand their cultural landscape but provides thoughtful and incisive attention to what’s happening throughout the nation. Other news media organizations may provide a means of communication between readers and advertisers, but AL DÍA creates an empowering and insightful partnership between the parties. AL DÍA blurs cultural lines to form one community. AL DÍA welcomes you to this community.
AL DÍA News Media’s print product is nationally award winning and has a 96% market penetration.
In 2014, the company relaunched its website with a focus on national content generation.
