Focus will be on Leadership, which means rising to meet the nation’s challenges, not making them worse. Putting the country ahead of oneself, focus on the leaders and the experts, the veterans and the activists, all those who seek to unite and not divide. It’s about making sure the government—the military, the judiciary, the scientists, everyone—is working in the national interest, not a president’s political interests. It will also include a Roll Call Across America, which will take viewers to all 57 states and territories. They will hear from voters, delegates, parents, teachers, small business owners, activists and leaders in the Democratic Party as they officially cast votes to nominate Joe Biden to become the next president of the United States of America.

Focus will be on America not going back to where it was before Donald Trump’s mismanagement of the pandemic and subsequent economic crisis, because for too many people, that wasn’t good enough. As he leads us out of crisis, Joe Biden will help build back better. He will have a historic partner in these efforts: the first female vice president. On Wednesday, they will hear from the Vice Presidential nominee and many others who are committed to working alongside Joe Biden to achieve his goals to form a more perfect union.
Thursday: America’s Promise

A former public defender, a leading senator, and two-term vice president, Joe Biden is one of the most experienced candidates to ever seek the office. Throughout his career, he has been tested by historic recessions, global conflicts, pandemics, divisive politics, and the never-ending quest for justice and fairness in America. Every step of the way, he has risen to the moment with steady and effective leadership. According to Joe, being president doesn’t change who you are, it reveals who you are. He is a man of character and decency, and of empathy and compassion who believes in America’s promise.
On the final night of the convention, they will hear from those who can speak to Joe Biden’s leadership and character. Joe Biden will speak about his vision for uniting America to move us forward out of constant chaos and crisis, and for delivering on that promise for all.
