What Every Woman Needs to Know About the Democratic National Convention

What Every Woman Needs to Know About the Democratic National Convention

// The Democratic National Convention will take place July 25-28 //

We are exactly one week away from the 2016 Democratic National Convention, an event which CEO Reverend Leah D. Daughtry deemed "the most diverse and the most forward-looking convention that we've had in recent history."

See below for everything you need to know about the upcoming DNC.

With an estimated 50,000 attendees, the event location will be home to its CEO, delegates, superdelegates, members of the press, activists, protesters, Hillary Clinton, and Senator Tim Kaine.

The selected delegates from each state nominate the Democratic Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates for the 2016 Election and the Democratic Party will adopt the official Democratic Party platform.

The event will take place at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from July 25–28, 2016.

Attendees for the DNC will assemble on Monday, July 25 to Thursday, July 28, 2016.

If you are hoping to watch the convention live, Twitter will be streaming the CBS News coverage of the DNC. Otherwise, following these social media accounts and participating with the hashtags is a great way to stay informed and get involved.
