Today’s Action: Host or attend a Democratic debate watch party!

The first rounds of Democratic presidential candidate debates were at the end of June – and what an event! Two nights of 10 candidates each, unpacking and examining the progressive policies we most want to see from our next president.

And although each candidate on stage was running as a Democrat, we saw a wide variety of attitudes and responses on each issue…a good reminder that it’s important not to assume stances at this early stage.

The second round of debates are July 30 and 31. This is an exciting and critical time in our journey to defeat Trump in 2020. Getting voters pumped about candidates – and ensuring candidates are pushing our platforms – starts now. There’s no better way to tackle both goals than by hosting or attending a debate watch party!

Save the date for July 30 and 31 – plan to tune in for the debates, and send an invitation out NOW to invite your friends, family, and community over for a watch-party! Need help, and/or want to make your party public? SwingLeft has the resources you need!

We don’t just want *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 welcome the official start of the 2020 election season.

Mark your calendar for July 30 and 31 for the second Democratic debate. Gather your community to help us determine our best candidate for 2020. If you want to make your party public, or need help planning, SwingLeft has resources!
