Democratic National Committee Holds Post-Convention General Session Meeting
July 29, 2016
PHILADELPHIA – Following a successful and historic convention where the Democratic Party nominated Hillary Clinton as the first woman in history to lead a major party's presidential ticket, the Democratic National Committee held their post-convention general session meeting in Philadelphia.
At the meeting, DNC Vice Chair Donna Brazile began her term as Interim Chair of the Democratic National Committee.
Democratic vice presidential nominee U.S. Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) stopped by the meeting to address the attendees.
U.S. Congresswoman Grace Meng (D-NY) was elected Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee by a unanimous vote.
DNC Members also established the DNC Disability Council, which will focus on addressing issues in the disability community and engaging voters with disabilities.
Finally, attendees honored Seth Rich, the DNC Voter Expansion Data Director who was tragically killed earlier this month in Washington D.C. Seth was a dedicated, selfless public servant who worked tirelessly to protect the most sacred right we share as Americans – the right to vote. The Democratic Party will continue to keep Seth’s family and friends in our thoughts and prayers as we carry on the work that was so important to him.
