DNCC Announces Headlining Speakers For Democratic National Convention In Philadelphia
Convention Will Showcase A Diverse, United, Energized Democratic Party Rallying Around Hillary Clinton in the Fight for an America That Is “Stronger Together”
Through narrative storytelling utilizing innovative technology, Hillary Clinton’s vision that we are stronger together will come into strong focus for the American people. A vision that America is at its best when we work together to solve our problems. We are stronger together when we build an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top. We’re stronger when we work with our allies around the world to keep us safe at home. And we’re stronger when we respect each other and really listen to each other – when we lift each other up instead of tearing each other down.
Here is a preview of each night:
Monday: United Together
Featuring First Lady Michelle Obama, Senator Bernie Sanders and DREAMer Astrid Silva
Gavel time expected at 3:00pm
Monday will focus on putting the future of American families front and center and how we’re stronger together when we build an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top and when everyone has a chance to live up to their God-given potential. DREAMer Astrid Silva will share her story and her fight to keep families together.
Tuesday: A Lifetime of Fighting for Children and Families

Thursday: Stronger Together
Hillary Clinton and Chelsea Clinton
Gavel time expected at 4:30pm
On the final day of the convention, Hillary will speak about her vision for our country – her belief that we are stronger together and that America is at its best when we work together to solve our problems.
Tonight, Democratic President Barack Obama will speak to the members of his party about the woman who he hopes will be elected the 45th president of the United States – Hillary Clinton.
He has a tough act to follow: Michelle Obama’s speech on Monday night is being called one of the greatest convention speeches ever. But he has been known to give good speeches too. ;)
