Bernie Sanders’ Watch Party Oct 15th

6 – 10 pm

Come together with friends, family, and neighbors to join our historic campaign to transform America.

Bernie understands that when you stand up and fight for working people, and stand up against large corporations and billionaires who rigged our economy and our democratic system and have done this for your whole life, you give people real motivation to vote. It’s up to all of us to spread the movement and get Bernie into the White House.

Come to this Debate Watch Party to gather with kindred spirits, and hear what it’s going to take to win the primaries and complete the political revolution. We’ll watch Bernie lay out his vision for America on the debate stage!

Wine, beer, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase.

Sponsored by Bernie’s campaign.
