Open Debates!

From: Zak C.
Sent on: Wednesday, February 5, 2014 6:13 PM
In 2012 I was Free and Equal Election Foundation's communications director and co-produced the two “3rd Party” presidential debates held that year that were moderated by Larry King and Thom Hartmann and viewed by an estimated audience of 20 million people.   A number of us who worked with Free & Equal then have even bigger plans moving forward. 
We believe that with laying the groundwork down now, we can create debates that are viewed by far more than 20 million people and really help restore honest presidential debates in America by creating public demand for the candidates on our stages to be included in the debates held by the Commission on Presidential Debates.
Our 4 point plan to restore open and honest debates in 2016 and let alternative voices and ideas be heard can be found at
The media project I'm working with now - - is with an eye on creating relationships with people in other organizations and media outlets that will potentially help with the 2016 plan. 
We are currently looking for organizations, companies, media outlets and individuals that would be interested in joining a coalition to help make these debates as big a success as possible, and if you know of anyone who might consider joining with - -   - - - some of the coalition already aboard, feel very free to pass this along.  We plan on really shaking things up!
