Democratic Debate Watch Party at Reem’s California


Join us at Reem’s California to watch the first 2019 Democratic debate! Twenty candidates will take the stage over the course of two evenings (6/26 & 6/27) to share their visions for our country. Hear first-hand what democratic presidential candidates have to say on critical issues like immigration, criminal justice reform, income inequality, healthcare, and more.

Everyone, regardless of political affiliation, is welcome and encouraged to join. Our goal is to promote thoughtful dialogue around Democratic candidates and deeper engagement in our political system to GET TRUMP OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE.

The 2020 Presidential election is our chance to put forward a new leader who will advocate for the rights of ALL American people, not just the wealthy, and to end Trumps daily hate and vitriol. We deserve better. Let's fight for it.
