Register: Natives 4 Biden Presidential Debate Pre Program Watch Party

Native supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden are hosting a pre-watch party for the final debate of the 2020 campaign.

Registration is required for the watch party, which starts at 8:30pm Eastern on Thursday evening. Supporters can tune in as early as 8:15pm to chat about the debate.

The debate is taking place at 9pm Eastern in Nashville, Tennessee. It is the second and final time Biden and Republican president Donald Trump will face off in person before the November 3 election.

The first debate was held in Cleveland, Ohio, on September 29. Two days later, Trump tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

As a result of Trump’s health condition, for which he was hospitalized over a four-day period, the Commission on Presidential Debates sought to hold the second debate virtually. It was canceled after Trump’s campaign did not agree with the new format.

Both candidates have released Indian policy platforms. Biden announced his plan back in March and updated the Plan for Tribal Nations earlier this month.

Trump chose a different path. His administration, rather than his re-election campaign, released the Putting America’s First Peoples plan on Tuesday.
