One of our first goals as an organization was to organize and moderate a debate. After fundraising among local Democratic clubs and contacting the candidates, we were able to put together a Democratic gubernatorial debate featuring three of the four candidates. We hosted the debate in the Bloomfield Hills High School Auditorium on Sunday, March 11th. The attendees were Shri Thanedar, Abdul El-Sayed and Bill Cobbs. Co-founders Michael Goldman Brown Jr. and Zackariah Farah.
The debate featured questions written by Engage18, questions from students across the area and questions submitted to us by the community. The El-Sayed campaign was able to live stream the entire debate on Facebook, which is still available on our page.
Looking towards the future, we will be hosting more debates in the upcoming months, including bipartisan ones.
