With no campaign rallies and no crowd at tonight’s debate, Bernie Sanders’ campaign is turning to livestreaming to engage with supporters.

Ahead of Sunday evening’s debate between Sanders and former vice president Joe Biden, the campaign has announced it will livestream a pre-debate show featuring environmental activist and Bernie 2020 national surrogate Naomi Klein and health care expert Micheal Lighty, along with special celebrity guests.

The hour-long livestream will be hosted by Sanders’ national press secretary Briahna Gray. Scheduled to begin at 7pm Eastern, the show will explore policy solutions to some of the greatest challenges facing the United States.

The livestream will be available across Sanders’ social media accounts, as well as the live page on the campaign’s website.

Sunday night’s debate is slated to kick off at 8pm, live from CNN’s studios in Washington, DC.
