CHICAGO – People’s Action today announced the cancellation of its October 13 People's Presidential Forum stop in New Hampshire.
"As is often the case when scheduling multiple national candidates, not enough candidates could make this date work to execute the event,” People’s Action Executive Director George Goehl said. “We look forward to facilitating engagement between candidates and People's Action members in New Hampshire in the near future. Our recent Iowa forum showed the deep value of putting everyday people on stage with candidates to challenge them to provide real solutions, and we look forward to building on that impact in our upcoming Nevada forum."
The next stop on for the presidential forum series will be Las Vegas, Nevada, on October 26, 2019, at an event co-sponsored by Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada Action Fund (PLAN Action) and People’s Action.
The forum series is part of a larger People’s Presidential Campaign strategy for the 2020 election that puts the People’s Platform first. People’s Action delegates will convene in November to endorse a candidate for president. With the largest community political organizations in Iowa, Nevada and New Hampshire, People’s Action will then quickly pivot to help its candidate win those key early voting states.
At the April 2019 People’s Action National Convention in Washington, D.C., nearly 1,000 delegates from across the country committed to organize 47,310 volunteers to move 2,829,105 voters to vote for candidates who will enact the People’s Platform. They also committed to raise at least $6,465,210 for the campaign.
