MILWAUKEE—The Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) today launched its revamped website, DemConvention.com—a dynamic and user-friendly platform that will make it easier than ever for the world to engage with the 2020 Democratic National Convention. The new website will connect delegates, members of the media, and those interested in getting involved with the convention with the resources they need to stay up-to-date on convention planning, and will continue to be updated with original content and innovative tools that invite all Americans to be a part of the historic event. The website has been built with the goal of adhering to some of the most up-to-date accessibility standards used by the web design community, and will continue to be tested and modified to ensure it is reaching the widest possible audience. All of the content is also featured in Spanish.
“As we gear up for the most important election in American history, the 2020 Democratic National Convention will mark a unifying and uplifting moment that we want the entire nation to experience,” said Democratic National Convention Committee CEO Joe Solmonese. “Our new website is inclusive, energetic, and forward-looking—just like the Democratic Party—and sends the message that the convention is ready to engage and mobilize more people than ever before.”
