    Zoom the Vice Presidential Debate!

    When Joe Biden selected Kamala Harris as his running mate, many of us thought first about how much fun it would be to watch her debate Vice President Pence.  Harris's background as a prosecutor and Attorney General of California are on display every time she examines someone, including her viral grilling of now-Justice Kavanaugh, and Democrats around the world are excited to see how she'll do in the Vice Presidential Debate. 

    Please join us for a watch party for the Vice Presidential Debate on Thursday 8 October. Note Australian Daylight Savings Time will have begun: the time is 12:00pm-1:30pm AEST (Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra) / 11:00am-12:30pm Brisbane. We will be watching the Washington Post livestream of the debate on Zoom and there will be a space for us to chat with each other about what we're seeing.
