Join us odirectly after this election season’s first Presidential Debate for a panel discussion entitled “Debunking the Presidential Debate“.

Whether you are a Democrat, Republican, Green Party or Independent, we can all agree that this has been one of the most, farcical and absurd presidential races in recent history. After a live public screening of the debates at Busboys and Poets, a full service restaurant, bookstore and stage of the art event space, our panel of guests, including Bill Ayers, Jared Ball, Medea Benjamin, and Fatemah Keshavarz, will discuss and illustrate how these two candidates have reduced the election process and the debates from its lofty origins to this oddity that we’ll witness on 9/26/16.

Co-sponsored by the Institute for Policy Studies, and Busboys and Poets.
