Today’s Action: Watch the Democratic debate TONIGHT!

The first round of Democratic debates is behind us, and part two is TONIGHT! Two nights of debates because we’ve got 20 candidates who have made the first cut, and the field is so large that they’ve been split into two groups.

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 the issues we care about — starts now. And there’s no better way to tackle both goals than by watching the debates and inviting your family and friends to join you!

Watch the debates! NBC, MSNBC, and Telemundo will broadcast the debates from 9 to 11 pm EST. You can also live-stream the debates online at,, or through a variety of other sources.

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 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 welcome the official start of the 2020 election season.

Tune in tonight! Watch the debates on NBC, MSNBC, or Telemundo from 9 to 11 pm EST. Or, live-stream them at,, or via a variety of other sources.
