Packed House for Debate Watch

Thank you to the 100+ students who joined us for a conversation and live debate watch of the 3rd round of Democratic primary debates. It was a historic evening — with the most women on stage at one time, and the first time the top two polling women (Warren and Harris) faced off. We were delighted to share this evening with so many of you!
