State Debate Coalition
Elevating Candidate Debates

The State Debate Coalition is a nonprofit organization uniting non-partisan debate commission groups from different states across the nation. Each state debate group that makes up the State Debate Coalition is dedicated to unbiased and transparent debates that will enable their voters to the informed use of their democracy and encourage greater voter participation.

These local state groups are organized and managed by academics, media players, and community leaders who have seen the need for access to clear politics in their respective states. The State Debate Coalition is a uniting force among these state groups and is pivotal in the expansion of this service to states that do not currently offer this service.
