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

The third round of Democratic debates is here! Tonight, we’ll hear from the top ten candidates: front-runners Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren, plus Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Julián Castro, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Beto O’Rourke, and Andrew Yang. For introductions to each, check out our OD Action candidate profiles!

The debate tonight only includes the top-performers – which means it’s a great chance for these candidates to deep-dive into issues. 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…because we want the best candidates to thrive!

Tune in TONIGHT to the third round of Democratic debates at 8-11 pm EST/5-8 pm PST on ABC News,, or streamed on Hulu Live, Facebook Watch, Twitter, Amazon Fire TV, AppleTV, YouTube, Apple News, or the Roku Channel. If you want to watch with fellow progressives, join a watch party (Indivisible)!

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 imigration 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.

Tune in for the Democratic debates TONIGHT at 8-11 pm EST/5-8 pm PST on ABC News,, or streamed on Hulu Live, Facebook Watch, Twitter, Amazon Fire TV, AppleTV, YouTube, Apple News, or the Roku Channel. Don’t watch alone – join a viewing party (Indivisible) near you!
