DNCC Announces Second Night Program for Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA – The Democratic National Convention Committeeannounced the program for the second day of the Democratic National Convention being held in Philadelphia.

In Philadelphia, Democrats are laying out the clear stakes in this election – a choice between building walls and tearing people down or an optimistic unifying vision where everyone has a role to play in building our future.

On Tuesday night, Democrats will highlight Hillary Clinton’s lifetime of fighting for children and families. No matter the odds, Hillary has spent her life fighting for children, families and those who have been forgotten and left behind.
