This Tuesday, November 24, we're airing the MoveOn 2016 Presidential Forum, featuring questions from MoveOn members and answers from Senator Bernie Sanders and former Governor Martin O'Malley.
We invited all the candidates but, unfortunately, former Secretary Hillary Clinton has so far declined to participate. She's missing an opportunity to speak directly to and energize millions of us in this hugely consequential election—but that won't stop the other candidates from voicing their perspectives on the issues most important to progressives across the country.
After the last Democratic debate, one thing was clear: The Democratic candidates aren't fighting about which direction we should head in—they're fighting about how we get there.
The power of the "Warren Wing" of the Democratic Party is on full display this election cycle.
In the MoveOn 2016 Presidential Forum, Sen. Sanders and Gov. O'Malley will tackle money in politics, climate change, gun violence, racism, Social Security, the Syrian refugee crisis, and more. They're bringing much-needed attention to the real problems facing our country and the kinds of solutions that grassroots movements have been pressing for.
We think you'll love the interviews with Sen. Sanders and Gov. O'Malley—but the real stars of the 2016 Presidential Forum are you, the MoveOn members.
Unlike the CNN and CBS debates—where questions are designed to maximize TV ratings—the MoveOn forum is 100% questions from MoveOn members filming their questions on their smartphones at their kitchen tables, at their desks, and in their school libraries.
And more than 11,000 of us submitted questions, in fact.
Thanks for all you do.
