The DNC won't have a climate change town hall but TYT is stepping up to the plate. We can't do it without you though. Make a Climate Town Hall happen: https://tyt.com/townhall
“San Francisco (CNN)Democratic National Committee members on Saturday voted down a resolution that would have resulted in single-issue debates among candidates -- including on the issue of the climate crisis.
The language that was rejected -- inserted at the behest of climate change activists during a contentious Resolutions Committee meeting on Thursday -- said the DNC, "will continue to encourage candidates to participate in multi-candidate issue-specific forums with the candidates appearing on the same stage, engaging one another in discussion."
Democratic presidential candidates are barred from appearing together on stage outside of DNC-sanctioned debates.
The committee's approved language from Thursday "essentially lifted the ban on candidates being unable to appear together on a stage at a forum or a candidate gathering," Washington State Democratic Party Chair Tina Podlodowski, a leader in the effort, told CNN. DNC members defeated the move to lift such a ban Saturday in a 222-137 vote. There were multiple observers from both sides who monitored the vote count.
Prior to the voting, DNC Chairman Tom Perez set up a system for members on both sides to speak about their reasoning.”
