Do you know where the presidential candidates stand on your issues? As they seek our votes in the primaries and beyond, join us in asking them #WhatAboutUs.
Democratic candidates will gather for five debates between mid-December and the end of February:
- December 19th, 2019 – Los Angeles, California
- January 14th, 2020 – Des Moines, Iowa
- February 7th, 2020 – Manchester, New Hampshire
- February 19th, 2020 – Las Vegas, Nevada
- February 25th, 2020 – Charleston, South Carolina
The first four 2020 debates come shortly in advance of the caucuses and primaries in these early voting states: Iowa (Feb. 3), New Hampshire (Feb. 11), Nevada (Feb. 22), and South Carolina (Feb. 29). This is when candidates start to build momentum toward Super Tuesday (March 3), when voting will take place in 14 states, and the field can shift widely.
Whether we live in these early primary states or not, this is a crucial period during which candidates must tell us where they stand on our issues while working to earn our votes.
During this time, we have to raise our collective voices and urge candidates, media, and our fellow voters to focus on the critical issues facing low-income families. We number in the tens of millions, and it’s time our issues are recognized and addressed in national debates – and in the policy visions of leading candidates.
Here’s how to get involved:
Have a story to share about you and your family? Tell us your story and we’ll share it out as we tell the stories of America’s working-class, low-income, and poor families.
Are you registered to vote? If you’re not already registered, register now to be able to make your voice heard at the polls in 2020.
Equal Voice Action’s #WhatAboutUs campaign calls on policymakers, media, and voters to focus on the critical issues facing poor and low-income families in America. Learn more.
