Democrats across the country are coming together August 17-20 to unite the country around our shared values and launch Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to victory this fall.  Americans are ready to come together to overcome the current cruses and come out stronger than ever. The coronavirus pandemic forced Democrats to scrap their planned in-person Milwaukee convention. Instead, speakers will deliver speeches from locations across the country and without the large in-person crowds that are traditionally seen at these events. All eyes will be on how smoothly the transition to a virtual convention works.

The convention’s main hubs will be stages in New York, Los Angeles, Milwaukee and in Biden’s home of Wilmington, Delaware — where he and his running mate, California Sen. Kamala Harris, will deliver their speeches later in the week. Emcees primarily broadcasting from Los Angeles will lead each night’s two-hour programs, while speakers deliver their remarks from historic locations around the country. Meanwhile, a production truck in Wilmington will monitor hundreds of live feeds from across the country — part of an effort to build excitement and add moments of reaction to the broadcasts. If Democrats can keep audiences tuned in and engaged, it could change the way political conventions are held moving forward.
