D.C. Council At-Large Candidate Forum

Join the Washington Blade, Team Rayceen, and the Gertrude Stein Democratic Club as we stream our DC Council, At-Large, 2020 Candidate Forums on September 15, 22, and 29.

Rayceen Pendarvis and Krylios will moderate three forums, on consecutive Tuesdays at 7pm, with candidates and nominees running in the 2020 general election for the two At-Large seats on the Council of the District of Columbia.

The public can submit questions through September 8th HERE.

For information about voter registration, receiving mail-in ballots, and more, DC residents should visit

On each date, the forum will stream live at 7pm on the Facebook pages of the Washington Blade and Team Rayceen Productions. 

Over the past several months, Rayceen Pendarvis and Krylios have interviewed many local candidates, including most of the At-Large candidates for DC Council. Those interviews are available on the Team Rayceen YouTube channel HERE
