Today’s action: Tune in for the Democratic debates TONIGHT!

The second round of Democratic debates are here! Tonight, we’ll hear from front-runners Joe Biden and Kamala Harris plus Julián Castro, Cory Booker, and more.

For many candidates, this round of debates will likely be their last chance to shine – going forward, the qualifying criteria gets more difficult to achieve. This means it’s critical we watch and pay close attention, to examine each candidate at face value and really understand where they stand on progressive issues before the next round of cuts…because we want the best candidates to make it through!

Tune in TONIGHT to the second round of Democratic debates on CNN,, or these mobile apps at 8 pm EST/5 pm PST. No paywalls to watch the debates! If you want to watch with fellow progressives, join a watch party (Indivisible/SwingLeft) near you!

We need a new president. But we don’t want just *any* new president. Just as the Great Depression opened up the doors for FDR and a generation of real progressive reforms, this new Trumpian rock bottom provides an opportunity to elect a president who will truly push America forward on issues like combating climate change, implementing a strong, compassionate immigration policy, valuing women’s and minority rights, enacting tax policies that expand opportunity and benefit the majority of American (not just billionaires and corporations), and so much more.

And just as importantly, we need voters who are fired up. We need Democrats who don’t *just* show up on Election Day (we need that, for sure), but who are also inspired to make phone calls, canvass for candidates, register voters, and donate to help push a Democratic president across the finish line next November.

All of this begins with watching the debates, which helps us sort out whom to rally behind and how we want to be involved. So gather your friends and a few snacks and beverages…and raise a glass to the 2020 election season.

Plan for the Democratic debates TONIGHT on CNN,, or via mobile apps at 8 pm EST / 5 pm PST. Enjoy at home, or join a watch party (Indivisible/SwingLeft) near you!
