Want to have a Watch Party for the AFSCME Presidential Debate

Want to have a Watch Party for the AFSCME Presidential Debate

Public service workers in Philadelphia, PA and across the country submitted questions for 2020
presidential candidates. Now, on Saturday, August 3, we want to know if you want to gather to hear candidates’ responses at a local watch party of the Public Service Forum hosted by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) and moderated by HuffPost.
Eighteen presidential candidates are expected, including former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Cory
Booker, Gov. Steve Bullock, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former HUD Secretary Julián Castro, Mayor Bill de
Blasio, former Rep. John Delaney, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Sen. Kamala Harris, Gov. Jay Inslee, Sen. Amy
Klobuchar, Rep. Seth Moulton, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Rep. Tim Ryan, Sen. Bernie Sanders, business
leader and philanthropist Tom Steyer, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and author Marianne Williamson.
This forum will give candidates the opportunity to speak directly with America’s public service workers
who will make their voices heard in this election. As they dedicate their lives to making our communities
stronger, safer and healthier, they have a unique perspective into solving the problems Americans face
every day.

So, how about attending or sponsoring a watch party at noon on August 3 for this event.

Call DC 47 VP Ethelind Baylor at 215-893-3761 for more information.
