Alice Summer 2020 Debate Series

This summer, the Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club is proud to host our first-ever Summer Debate Series, featuring candidates running in three of San Francisco’s most exciting local races. Taking place in late July and early August, these debates will showcase the enduring importance of City politics during the COVID era, all filmed locally at Manny’s and broadcast via Zoom.

We at Alice were deeply disappointed when COVID-19 concerns required the cancellation of our beloved Pride Breakfast—the first time since the Breakfast was first held that a summer will pass without it! But we’re excited to offer our new debate series as a way for supporters new and old to continue contributing to our club’s work! 

Find out more about sponsorships and individual tickets here!

Multiple sponsorships are available with a variety of benefits to choose from. Individual tickets are free, with a suggested donation of $25. Registration is required to view the debates live!

COVID-19 and the ongoing protest movement against systemic racism have shone a spotlight on the power of local officials to impact ordinary people’s everyday lives. We’re thrilled to bring topical, timely questions to those running for Supervisor in San Francisco, to hear from a variety of candidates (as well as a few special guests!) and we hope you’ll join us for what promises to be a very exciting Summer Debate Series.

– District 1: Thursday July 23
– District 11: Thursday July 30
– District 7: Thursday August 6

Location and Format:
UPDATE: Due to the rising number of COVID cases in San Francisco, our summer debate series is being moved entirely online

We were incredibly excited to hear from candidates live at Manny’s, but for the safety of our participants we have decided to host our debates remotely. Viewers will still be able to join us via Zoom.
