As MA shelters in place, Congressman Kennedy will address residents in evening broadcasts from home every Monday and Thursday night at 8 PM with special co-hosts

Watertown, MA — In the wake of COVID-19 and the Commonwealth’s recent stay-at-home advisory, Congressman Joe Kennedy III will address residents every Monday and Thursday night at 8 PM in a “Kennedy Evening Broadcast” from his home in Newton. Each episode will stream live on Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube, and will feature a special co-host.

Co-hosts will join via video to talk about everything from health and safety precautions to tips on how to stay busy at home during quarantine. Thursday night's guest is author and illustrator Peter Reynolds. Reynolds is best known for his children's books about "authentic learning, creativity and self-expression", including The North Star, Ish, The Dot, and So Few of Me.

Tonight, Reynolds will read his book Rose’s Garden, a children’s book dedicated to Kennedy’s great-grandmother Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy about patience, creativity, and working together. Parents and children are encouraged to tune in for tips on how to maintain positivity at home during this time and enjoy the reading.

In addition to the Kennedy Evening Broadcasts, Kennedy will host a Weekly Wednesday Q&A with supporters and the general public on Facebook Live. Folks tuning are encouraged to submit their questions regarding COVID-19, quarantine, and what is happening in Washington, D.C. in the comments for Kennedy to answer directly. These Q&As will take place every Wednesday evening at 8pm on the Kennedy for MA Facebook page.

These nightly broadcasts are part of Kennedy’s larger effort to connect with residents during this time of deep uncertainty. Prior to the stay-at-home advisory, Kennedy updated residents in a series of virtual town hall events. These special broadcasts will take the place of his virtual town halls, and Kennedy will continue to reach residents throughout the day with clips on Facebook Live, Instagram Live, and Twitter. Critical information can also be found on Kennedy’s online rapid response center and virtual campaign office on Facebook.
