Tune in to the Democratic Convention

I hope you have been following the Democratic National Convention. The Convention theme is "Stronger Together" - in stark contrast to last week's Republican festival of bigotry and divisiveness. Democrats Abroad is there in Philadelphia with its delegation and you can follow along with the Convention and Democrats Abroad participation in many different ways.  The messages we are listening to this week are messages of hope and inspiration.

We’ll be regularly posting on our Facebook page and we will be providing regular updates on our website – with first-hand reporting from members of our delegation.  And for Check out our twitters at #daphilly2016.   During last night's roll call when Democrats Abroad announced its vote, Democrats Abroad was the number one twitter.

If you want to watch the Convention, you can tune into CNN which will be providing regular coverage – or you can watch the Convention’s own coverage either here https://www.demconvention.com/watch-live/ or on YouTube at (http://www.democratsabroad.org/2016_dnc_convention.

You can keep up to date with the schedule for the Convention at www.demconvention.com, but in brief the scheduled highlights of the upcoming evening events are:

Tuesday:  President Bill Clinton and the Roll Call Vote for President

Wednesday:  Vice President Joe Biden and President Obama

So tune in and follow the action.  We are going to come out of the Convention energized and united for what looks to be a hotly contested election in November.
