2020 Democratic National Convention Nears: Here’s Who Will Be Delivering Speeches

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will accept the nomination at the upcoming Democratic National Convention, and there will be several prominent people delivering speeches.

The Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) made the announcement on Tuesday listing the speakers headlining the convention titled “Uniting America.” Additionally, other “individuals from all walks of life, political affiliations and every corner of the country who support” Biden will also be giving speeches.

The convention is set to be held August 17-20. Here is a look at some of the people who will headline, according to the DNCC’s press release.


Speakers will address “three crises” that are occurring in the U.S. currently, including the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of Americans out of work, and racial injustices.

A few of the speakers include:


The focus of Tuesday is “on the leaders and the experts, the veterans and the activists, all those who seek to unite and not divide, and who step up—not back down — from a fight over what’s right,” the press release reads.

There will also be a keynote address on Tuesday.

A few of those who will headline the convention on Thursday include:

Biden is expected to accept the nomination in Delaware, after nixing plans to accept it in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.


  1. Unfortunately change AKA progressive, takes time as in “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” The most important goal is to win the 2020 election.

  2. General, WHO are you NOT counting as progressive? Is it AOC or Bernie? Is Sen Warren only “.25” progressive because she told the truth that M4A would not be passed in the first 3 years? There are 35 open Senate seats in 2020—You would need ALL to be replaced by a far-lefty. Seeing that happen??? If you are, seek help.

    What is the “biggest on-line progressive media outlet? IJR posters believe it is CNN.com.

    I couldn’t tell if Sen Harris was far-left or moderate since she changed her positions on a daily basis.

    BTW: This, as indicated in the article, is not a complete list of speakers.

  3. For all of you scaredy cats, either on the right OR from the left, there is ONE progressive speaker listed, 1.25 if you include Sen. Warren.

    The DNC went so far as to include right-wing media but pointedly EXCLUDED from the convention the biggest on-line progressive media outlet entirely.

    ANYONE thinking that Biden’s regime or the DNC are being controlled by or is moving to the left are stupid fearmongerers or you are just indoctrinated to say those things.


    And Matt Gaetz is a tool.

  4. The list is representative of the diversity of the Democrat Party. This list does not indicate what night John Kasich will speak. I would also like to see his speech.
    Any wagers on seeing representatives of the diversity of the Republican and Trump party? Bill Weld, Mark Sanford, Joe Walsh? Or Jeff Flake, Bob Corker, Michael Rogers, or Mitt Romney? They all claim to still be Republicans.
