Today’s Action: Tune into the final day of the DNC – and take action during the convention!

Today is the final day of the 2020 Democratic National Convention! It’s your last chance to be part of the action as our party votes in the candidate and platform for a post-Trump world.

The convention isn’t just pretty speeches – it’s where our party debates and formalizes party and caucus platforms for the coming term. And since it’s all online, it’s never been easier to join in.

Thursday’s agenda includes (times in EST):

  • Poverty Council Meeting, noon – 2 pm
  • Small Business Council Meeting, 1 – 3 pm
  • Native American Caucus Meeting, 4 – 6 pm
  • #DemGovsGetItDone: Progress in Red and Purple States, 7 – 8 pm
  • Pod Save America Live, 8 pm
  • Speakers including Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Keisha Lance Bottoms and more rising stars in the Democratic Party, 9 – 11 pm
  • And so much more! Check out the full Thursday schedule and speaker list.
  • All of the ways to tune in…

And while you’re watching our leaders discuss solutions to the biggest problems facing this country, or getting pumped up by inspiring speakers who remind us why we’re in this fight, why not put that energy to use by taking action during the convention?

Record a video demanding the Senate pass the HEROES Act!

Mitch McConnell sent the Senate home for recess without any resolution on a new pandemic stimulus package. Despite months with the HEROES Act on his desk, Republicans waited until the last minute to negotiate a deal…and failed. The GOP’s irresponsibility has left millions without enough unemployment insurance to survive, any eviction protections, or security for a safe, representative vote this November.

We need to up the pressure. Don’t just email and call your Senators – speak to them directly face-to-face by recording a video about how the pandemic has affected you, and how you need Congress to help.

Record a video telling your Senators why you need and want the HEROES Act during this pandemic. Upload to social media, and don’t forget to tag them (we’ve got the Twitter handles and click here for Instagram/Facebook!) And if you like, tag @ODAction on Twitter so that we can cheer you on!
