Co-hosted by the DC Democratic Party and the DC Young Democrats, the event is part of the Party’s 2020 voter outreach and education initiatives aimed at bringing local Democrats together in a fun and exciting atmosphere to hear candidates’ layout their ideas, values, and policy prescriptions for the country. In addition to the Ward 8 Democrats, the Nelson Mandela Returning Citizens is also co-sponsoring the Thursday night debate. The second watch party takes place the night before at Haydee's Restaurant in the Mount Pleasant community. That event is co-hosted by the DC Latino Caucus.
