The first presidential debate will take place on Thursday, June 27, at 9:00 PM Eastern on CNN. We know the 2024 election will be one of the most important elections in modern history. And we believe that, as a nation, we are called to find a path that leads to justice and flourishing for all.

We hope that you track the candidate’s comments with NETWORK’s Presidential Debate Issues Checklist to evaluate what you have learned about each candidate’s commitment to justice and flourishing.

Please share this nonpartisan ‘Debate Issues Checklist’ with friends, family, and others in your community!

Catholics and people of good faith believe freedom is essential for communities to thrive. People of every race, background, and experience will flourish if they have the freedoms needed to care for themselves and their family, to be healthy, to be free from harm, and to participate in a vibrant democracy. These freedoms are at the core of the Equally Sacred Checklist, the central resource of Vote Our Future, NETWORK’s nonpartisan voter education campaign.
