This week, JDCA was on the ground for both nights of Democratic debates in Detroit. Our biggest takeaway from the debates is that our diversity is our strength.
The diversity in views, policies, and backgrounds in the second round of debates represents our strength as Democrats. At a time when President Trump has used hate, fear, racism, and xenophobia to divide Americans, we are embracing our diversity and those candidates who share our values and policies.
As Speaker Pelosi has said, “our diversity is our strength, and our unity is our power,” and we look forward to unifying behind the strongest nominee in 2020.

While JDCA will make no endorsements during the primary season, we look forward to continuing to hear from all the candidates about how they will take our country in a new direction, consistent with our values, which have been under attack under Trump.
That said, we cannot take victory in 2020 for granted.
