Organize a Debate Watch Party Using Mobilize America

We think the 2020 Democratic primary debates are the best, first organizing opportunity that we have of the presidential election cycle and we are excited for the debates. The first debate will be in Miami, FL on June 26th and 27th – but you can join us from anywhere by hosting a Democratic Debate Watch Party!

For the Democratic primary debates the DNC is offering activists like you access to our event hosting tool called Mobilize America so you can brand your watch party and use this technology to collect and track RSVP’s.

If you host your event using Mobilize America it will also show up on our national dashboard when people search for activities in their area code. To start the process click here and you’ll be taken to a form where you can sign up and submit an event. We’ve already loaded in an event description and graphic to keep things super easy!

Once you create your watch party event, be sure to share it far and wide with your networks to increase attendance. We will also be providing training for hosts and other resources so you can be best prepared to organize a successful Democratic Debate Watch Party!

Let me know if you are hosting a watch party by emailing jacksont@dnc.org so I can offer you help and assist you in promoting your event on social media.
