MIAMI — May 30, 2019 — Noticias Telemundo today announced the exclusive livestream of the “Unity and Freedom Presidential Forum of 2019,” a Democratic Presidential forum hosted by FIRM Action, Community Change Action and CHIRLA Action Fund in Pasadena, California, this Friday, May 31 at 5 PM ET/4 CT/2 PT. The forum will be available live via NoticiasTelemundo.com, the Noticias Telemundo mobile app, and Noticias Telemundo properties on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

Senator Kamala Harris and former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro will be discussing issues that directly impact immigrant communities in the United States in front of an audience of 500 grassroots leaders and activists from across the country. The forum takes place a month before the first Democratic Presidential Debate of the 2020 electoral cycle, which will be broadcast exclusively by Telemundo, NBC News and MSNBC.
