Donate to Promising Candidates
One of the criteria for Democratic candidates to qualify for participation in official debates is to receive donations from at least 130,000 individuals, including at least 400 donors representing at least 20 states (source). This means that, while big donations are of course always great, small donations from many different people are also being strategically sought. So make your $5 count! Select one or more candidates from whom you’d like to hear more on the debate stage and chip in a few dollars to their campaign. It’s an affordable investment to make in exchange for (ideally) a more compelling slate of candidates.
