A cornerstone of Buttigieg's candidacy is the Douglass Plan. Named after the abolitionist Frederick Douglass, the plan proposes an overhaul to the American social system to secure equality for African Americans.

Buttigieg has also pitched himself as a candidate to fight climate change, in favor of policies like the Green New Deal, a carbon tax and dividend and the Paris Climate Agreement.

Buttigieg responds to questions from the audience. The questions addressed a variety of topics from his favorite memory from seventh grade to his thoughts on the problem of international participation in combating climate change.

Buttigieg calls to abolish the electoral college and switch to elections by popular vote. The electoral college has been facing renewed criticism since the 2016 presidential election, when Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee, won the popular vote by two points but lost the electoral college by over 14 points.

Buttigieg shakes a supporter’s hand after finishing his speech. Buttigieg also visited San Francisco earlier in the day to stand with rideshare drivers protesting for higher wages.

Supporters gather around the front of the club for a chance to shake Buttigieg's hand. Buttigieg also held a donor luncheon in Los Angeles the following day.
