Miami Dade College, Univision News, The Washington Post and Facebook will host the eighth Democratic Presidential Primary Debate at MDC’s Kendall Campus, sanctioned by the Democratic National Committee, on Wednesday, March 9, 2016. Univision’s Maria Elena Salinas and Jorge Ramos and The Washington Post’s Karen Tumulty will moderate.
MDC at the Center
MDC is often at the center of the national conversation and has a long history of being chosen to host national leaders and major events. Last year was unprecedented as U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush each chose MDC as the stage from which to make formal announcements of their presidential campaigns.
During the previous presidential election, the College teamed with Univision to co-host candidate forums with Gov. Mitt Romney and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Other world leaders hosted at MDC include President Barack Obama, President George W. Bush, President Bill Clinton, former U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, President George H.W. Bush and many other national figures in the last decade alone.
Become a Citizen and Vote
If you are not yet a citizen and are eligible to apply for U.S. citizenship, you can take advantage of a special “citizenship clinic” to be held on March 19 at Marlins Park. The clinic will provide free legal advice and assistance in the preparation of your citizenship application. MDC is working with the New Americans Campaign to provide pre-clinic information sessions that will help you to arrive prepared and leave the clinic with a completed application. You can find details and reserve your spot for the information sessions and the clinic on the project’s website.

Facebook is teaming up with Univision and The Washington Post to engage with millions of viewers who are expected to tune in and use social media as they view, share, comment and ask questions about the debate and the candidates.
