DNC Announces Caucuses and Councils for the Democratic National Convention

The Democratic National Committee announced today the list of caucus and council meetings that will take place over the course of the Democratic National Convention from August 17-20, 2020.

Even in the midst of the pandemic, the DNC is committed to holding typical convention events that would normally take place in-person throughout the day, just in a new way. Our convention stage is bigger this year than ever before—located in cities and towns across America–and so are the caucus and council meetings. No one will need a convention credential to experience these meetings up close, and we’ll hear from people who represent our nation’s strength, decency and humanity.

The 30 events planned for this week will be led by caucus and council chairs from across the country and will be open to the public. Attendees will hear from activists, labor leaders, community leaders, former 2020 presidential candidates, DNC leadership, elected officials, and more.

Speakers at various caucuses and council meetings include: Speaker Nancy Pelosi, DNC Chair Tom Perez, and 2020 presidential candidates Julián Castro, Cory Booker, Andrew Yang, Elizabeth Warren, Jay Inslee, Tom Steyer, Amy Klobuchar, Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, and Tim Ryan.

Delegates and members of the public will be provided an engaging experience through a unique digital platform allowing participants to chat with others, complete calls to action, post to social media, and participate in polls throughout the programming to engage viewers in a meaningful way. The live landing page can be found here.

“This historic ‘Convention Across America’ anchored in Milwaukee is an extraordinary opportunity to unite our party around our common values, lift up the stories of hardworking Americans, and showcase the steady leadership of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris,” said DNC Chair Tom Perez. “We will be doing it in a way that protects the health and safety of the American people while using new and innovative ways to share our message with more voters than ever before, and engage with our delegates and members of the public through our caucus and council meetings each day of the convention.”
