Andrew Yang, another candidate in the crowded 2020 Democratic presidential race, will stop at the Silver Dollar in Charleston this month.
The 44-year-old entrepreneur will stop at the (newly renovated) King Street bar as part of his “Humanity First Tour” on Sun. May 19 at 6 p.m.
Yang is campaigning on the idea of a universal basic income of $1,000 a month for all U.S. citizens over the age of 18. He has also backed single-payer health care, the decriminalization of opioids, and lowering the voting age to 16.
In November 2017, Yang became the first person to declare his run for the Democratic nomination.
[content-1] He is the founder of Venture for America, a nonprofit that trains young adults to work for startups across the country through a two-year fellowship program. In 2015, he was named a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship by President Barack Obama. (Elizabeth Holmes was also one of the ambassadors, but stepped down in 2016 due to a federal investigation into her blood testing company, Theranos, which was at point valued at $9 billion and eventually turned out to be a scam.)
You can RSVP to meet Yang here.
