Dear Presidential Candidate, Please Come to One of our Town Halls

Denise
On Monday, July 24, I sent invitations to 20 of the 2020 Presidential Candidates to join us at one of our four Town Halls we plan to host this November. The town hall details are as follows:

  • We’re hosting one Town Hall on Friday, November 8, at 7:30 p.m. at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare during our Fourth Annual National Caregiving Conference

  • We’re hosting three Town Halls virtually through Zoom on the following dates:

    • Tuesday, November 12 at 8 p.m. ET

    • Tuesday, November 19 at 8 p.m. ET

    • Tuesday, November 26 at 8 p.m. ET




Our Town Halls will last 90 minutes, feature five candidates and provide an opportunity for attendees to ask questions during our fist 60 minutes. Each candidate will have five-minutes during our last 30 minutes to share closing thoughts.


We expect about 300 individuals to attend the Town Halls, either at our conference or virtually through Zoom. With the candidates' permission, we would love to record our town halls and archive them on Caregiving.com so our visitors and members who couldn’t join us live can still hear their messages.


During our Town Halls, we want to facilitate a conversation between the candidates and those who care for a family member with a chronic illness or disability or disease. These family caregivers would love the opportunity to ask you questions about your positions on issues that impact them like:




  • the health care system, 

  • the costs of care,

  • the lack of funding for caregiving support services and

  • the challenges of keeping a career during a caregiving experience.


Our goal is to create Town Halls that facilitate meaningful conversations while informing voters.


We'd love your help in amplifying our invitation to the candidates. I've created a graphic you can download and save to share on social media. You also can tag the Presidential candidates when you share the graphic on social media. You also can send an email to the candidates encouraging them to accept our invitation and add how much you want to hear their perspectives on issues that directly impact you. You also can share your story, your challenges and the kind of support and help that would make a difference for you and your caree. You also can follow our hashtag on Twitter (#ncc19townhall) and retweet our messages.

Please feel free to share the invite and our infographic about caregiving stress:



(Just in case you need, we also have the Candidate Invite in a PDF form.)

Thank you so much for your help!
