I'm here in Charlotte at the convention, running from caucus to meeting to speech, but I wanted to take a minute to report back to you what it's like in the arena.
The crowds are buzzing with energy and excitement. After an amazing first day—and the First Lady's moving speech last night—everyone feels like they're part of something incredible. There are crazy shirts, hats, pins, and signs, and folks are constantly breaking into spontaneous cheers and chants. Everywhere you turn, there's someone asking you if you're ready to vote.
That's my cue. From the convention floor to you: Commit to vote today and make sure that you're registered. Then spread the word.
Yesterday's women's caucus meeting was inspiring. More than a thousand women gathered to hear from amazing speakers who reminded us: This election is about making sure that being a woman will no longer be a pre-existing condition. It's about creating jobs for all Americans, but also about making sure that women get paid fairly for those jobs.
This election is a choice between a ticket that stands up for women and one that wants to drag our rights backward.
It's about our mothers, our sisters, and our daughters.
We can decide this election—but only if we vote. Take part in our weekly Women's Wednesday day of action, and commit to vote now. Then get others to join you:
