In addition to an amazing slate of candidates including: Nicole Galloway, Jill Schupp, Yinka Faleti, Alissia Canady, Vicki Englund, and Rich Finneran, we have a very special, nationally-known guest speaker who will be joining us — and ticket holders will be the very first to know who it is!

The 2020 Democratic National Convention is in the Books!

Thank you to everyone who joined and participated in caucus meetings, breakout sessions, breakfasts, and happy hours during the 2020 DNC! Missouri was so fortunate to bring in some amazing Democrats like Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Gov. Laura Kelley, along with our very own Nicole Galloway, Jill Schupp, and Yinka Faleti to celebrate our official nomination of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for President and Vice-President of the United States. Onward to November!
