We started out today at the “Campaign Conversations” event with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She addressed party unity, the priorities of Congress in the next month and after the election, and emphasized the role of science for growth in America.
After the Pelosi event, we went straight to the DNC Women’s Caucus, which was sponsored by Lifetime. Thanks and credit for Hillary Clinton’s historic run for President were given by many speakers, as well as remembrances for Ohio Congresswomen Stephanie Tubbs-Jones. Rissi Palmer sang a couple songs before opening the caucus with the national anthem.
Speakers included Rosario Dawson, Eva Longoria, Donna Brazile, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, Senator Debbie Stabenow, Ellen Malcolm of Emily’s List, and many, many others. Donna Brazile was a huge hit, receiving multiple standing ovations.
After the the Women’s Caucus, we took a break to eat and regroup before heading over to the Big Tent. We’re off to a watch party next, but stay tuned for more YouTube videos!
