Ahead of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s speech on Thursday, July 28, the weeklong event will feature a bevy of speakers, including celebrities Demi Lovato, America Ferrera and Lena Dunham.
Michelle Obama is scheduled to speak Monday at the convention at approximately 10 p.m. ET. According to CNN, the first lady of the United States is expected to discuss the role a president plays in shaping the lives of American children, and why she feels that Clinton, 68, is the best for the job.
Clinton’s former rival for the nomination, Bernie Sanders, is also scheduled to speak the first night, which will feature the theme of "United Together." The Vermont senator, who urged hundreds of his supporters to vote for Clinton prior to the start of the DNC on Monday and was loudly booed, will address the recent email hack that allegedly showed that the DNC favored the former secretary of state over him.
Elizabeth Warren, the senator from Massachusetts, will serve as the convention’s keynote speaker and is slated to address the 1,900 delegates on Monday. The theme of the convention, according to its website, will be about putting American families front and center.
Tony Goldwyn, Elizabeth Banks, Debra Messing, Eva Longoria and more Clinton supporters will also be in attendance. The evening will include a performance by Paul Simon as well.
On Tuesday, Clinton’s husband and former president Bill Clinton is also expected to speak.
