And what Motherly is watching for.
[Editor's note: Motherly is committed to covering all relevant presidential candidate plans as we approach the 2020 election. We are making efforts to get information from all candidates. Motherly does not endorse any political party or candidate. We stand with and for mothers and advocate for solutions that will reduce maternal stress and benefit women, families and the country.]
It kicks off at 9 pm Eastern time from Cleveland, where just 70 people will be in the audience for this historic and socially-distanced, 90-minute debate.
We at Motherly are preparing, too.
The candidates are expected to talk about the following issues tonight, according to the Commission on Presidential Debates:
- The Trump and Biden Records
- The Supreme Court
- The Economy
- Race and Violence in our Cities
- The Integrity of the Election
History has proven that fewer viewers watch the later debates, and by October 15 and 22, when the duo face off again, many will have already voted through advanced ballots.
Mothers in America deserve to know exactly how the candidates plan to address the cultural expectations that contribute to maternal stress in America, including:
- The future of paid family leave in America
- How maternal health crisis will be addressed
- And affordable childcare solutions
We're calling on President Trump and Joe Biden to speak to America's mothers about the following issues, if not tonight then soon.
