What is the Big Tent Event?

Evanston’s first Democratic presidential primary event. Your chance to express a preference in our straw poll and form grassroots organizing teams for your candidate .

Undecided on a candidate? You’ll have chance to learn about the candidates and talk with their local supporters.

What is the goal of the Big Tent Event?

Our goal is to help organize citizens around their candidate of choice and offer DPOE resources to these grassroots candidate groups. We will help train candidate groups on phone banking, canvassing, social media outreach skills along with granting office time to give these groups a home-base to plan, organize and campaign from.

Please come. Grassroots support is essential to creating a strong candidate campaign. We can not stress enough how important grassroots support is at this stage of the campaign and how important it is we all learn as much as we can about these candidates and come together to support the right candidate for the 2020 presidential race.

When and Where: The 2020 Presidential Candidate Big Tent Event will be Sunday June 30th at the Fleetwood-Jourdain Center from 3pm to 4:30pm. If you already know which candidate you are supporting and would like to help organize for your candidate at this event, please contact Media@EvanstonDems.com
