December 15, 2016
The Democratic Party today announced the first stop of its “DNC Future Forum,” which will feature candidates running for the next party chair and candidates for the other national officers. The tour is an opportunity for top Democrats to listen to the American people, to lay out their vision for the future of the Party, to demonstrate their leadership, and to show their commitment to key issues that matter most to hardworking families.

All regional forums will be open to the public and streamed live. This January will mark the first time Democrats have held regional forums for officer elections in more than 10 years.
