On the sixtieth anniversary of the first televised presidential debate, between Kennedy and Nixon, this fall Americans will experience presidential debates like no others. As Americans navigate a transformed political landscape, the pandemic, and civil unrest, the debates are designed to shed light on the candidates, their positions, and fitness for office. Our prominent panelists, from all sides of the political spectrum, will engage in a live Town Hall to consider ways to make the debates more effective and enlightening for voters. Questions will be fielded from all over the country to help form the discussion.
