debate questions

For this election cycle, UFCW is launching a new effort called ‪#‎AnswerMyQuestion2016‬. The goal is really simple.

We want all the 2016 presidential candidates, Democratic and Republican, to answer your questions and those that matter to hardworking families - and there is no better time to ask tough questions than a debate.

So here is what you can do…Tell us what questions you have for the presidential candidates at this first Democratic debate. Take a video of you holding a sign with your question, or just your picture of your question.

Whether it’s a picture, video, or just a written question, you can post it at We hope you encourage your friends and co-workers to do the same.
