A Forum for New Hampshire’s Young Professionals to Engage with Presidential Candidates
Stay Work Play New Hampshire and the New Hampshire Institute of Politics (NHIOP) have announced that Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard will headline the third of a new event series, “Politics Unplugged: 2020,” on January 16, 2020.
Previously known as the “Life of the Party” series, “Politics Unplugged: 2020” aims to be unique and engaging, serving those who are looking for an alternative to the traditional political process and enabling young people to ask questions of interest to their demographic. Attendees will get to know candidates as people, rather than just political figures, through free-flowing and casual discussion where civil conversation overrides party politics.
Will Stewart, Executive Director of Stay Work Play New Hampshire, and Victoria Adewumi, Chair of New American Africans and a Community Liaison at the Manchester Health Department, will co-moderate the discussion with topics of interest to young professionals in New Hampshire. As attendees arrive, they will have time to network and enjoy music, light refreshments, and beverages.
The series previously hosted U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Cory Booker. Audience members are encouraged to dress casually and take part in the conversation. Questions and topics of interest can be submitted through the event registration form at pu2020gabbard.eventbrite.com.
The free event will be held at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College on Thursday, January 16, 2020 at 4 p.m. Doors open at 3:30 p.m. Those planning to attend should complete the online registration form to secure a spot. The “Politics Unplugged: 2020” series is sponsored by Bank of America.
