Elizabeth Warren’s campaign is coming to Cascadia; will hold 0825 Seattle town hall

Want to engage with one of the lead­ing Demo­c­ra­t­ic can­di­dates for Pres­i­dent of the Unit­ed States? Here’s your chance! Sen­a­tor Eliz­a­beth War­ren of Mass­a­chu­setts is bring­ing her bur­geon­ing pres­i­den­tial cam­paign to the Pacif­ic North­west this week­end. Her cam­paign has announced that the cen­ter­piece of the trip will be a Sun­day after­noon town hall in down­town Seat­tle at the WaMu The­ater.

The event is free to attend, but reg­is­tra­tion is request­ed.

Here are the details:

Seat­tle Town Hall with Eliz­a­beth War­ren
Sun­day, August 25, 2019
WaMu The­ater
800 Occi­den­tal Ave S
Seat­tle, WA 98134

Doors open at 12:15 PM. Event starts at 2:15 PM.

You can RSVP online if you’d like to attend.

War­ren is the third Demo­c­ra­t­ic con­tender to vis­it Seat­tle (not count­ing Wash­ing­ton State Gov­er­nor Jay Inslee, who calls Cas­ca­dia home). Vice Pres­i­dent Joe Biden had a cou­ple of closed door fundrais­ers here a few months ago, and South Bend May­or Pete Buttigieg held a fundrais­er at The Show­box a few weeks ago.

Nei­ther Biden nor Buttigieg held events that were free to attend.

War­ren’s town hall, on the oth­er hand, does not have an admis­sion fee. War­ren says her objec­tive is to run a grass­roots-ori­ent­ed cam­paign that is pow­ered by peo­ple instead of armies of lob­by­ists and the welathy inter­ests they work for.

NPI is plan­ning to cov­er the town hall here on The Cas­ca­dia Advo­cate as well as In Brief. If you go, pack your patience, as lines could be long.

  1. [My ques­tion to War­ren:]

    You have a lot of great, well thought out plans for many impor­tant issues, but none of thar is going to mat­ter unless we can deal with cli­mate change. What is your plan to get peo­ple on board? How will you deal with the doubters, deniers and peo­ple whose greed make them resist the kinds of changes that we need to make if we want to sur­vive?
