Iowa Democratic Party Announces Speakers for Liberty and Justice Celebration
The premier event of the Caucus season releases public arena seating tickets today
DES MOINES — Today, the Iowa Democratic Party (IDP) announced 14 featured speakers for the Liberty and Justice Celebration on Friday, November 1, at the Wells Fargo Arena. Public arena seating tickets are available for purchase here.
The annual celebration will feature speeches from 2020 presidential candidates including Sen. Michael Bennet, Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Cory Booker, Gov. Steve Bullock, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sec. Julián Castro, Rep. John Delaney, Sen. Kamala Harris, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Mr. Tom Steyer, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and Mr. Andrew Yang.
The Liberty and Justice Celebration is an opportunity to highlight the strength of the party heading into the 2020 elections, and to celebrate the candidates and campaigns that are organizing to turn Iowa blue in 2020, beginning with the first-in-the-nation caucuses on February 3rd.
“Iowa’s first-in-the-nation caucuses are a place where real organizing happens. Door-to-door, neighbor-to-neighbor connections are how campaigns are won here in Iowa. We’re fortunate to have so many outstanding presidential candidates who are doing the hard work necessary to win, and that commitment by this year’s speakers will be on display at the Liberty & Justice Celebration,” said IDP Chair Troy Price. “But beyond the presidential campaign, this event is a chance for us as Iowa Democrats to come together and show the world the tremendous energy that exists in our party. Democrats are energized and organized in all corners of the state, and this momentum will propel us to our most successful caucus night ever, and more importantly, Democratic victories up and down the ticket in 2020!”
Each of these confirmed speakers has met a threshold to participate, including signing a pledge to keep the Iowa Caucuses first-in-the-nation beyond 2020.
