Democratic Convention is Here but Virtual

Democratic Convention is Here but Virtual

By Allana J. Barefield

The Democratic National Convention kicked off on August 17, but the event is virtual. The four-day event consists of delegates, entertainers and politicians. The conference is made up of live, but also pre-recorded videos that will be played for attendees. The purpose of the convention is for Democrats to formally nominate their 2020 presidential ticket — Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

The duo will present their platform and address why Americans should cast their vote for them. Speakers include President Barack Obama, former First Lady Michelle Obama and Sen. Bernie Sanders. This year’s theme is “Uniting America” and how that can happen when it comes to COVID-19, racial injustice and the downhill of the economy. You can catch the DNC on major television networks and it is also being live-streamed on platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
