Hi, I'm Gwen Moore and it's my honor to represent Milwaukee in Congress and to kick off the 2020 Democratic Convention. Oh, I sure wish you all were here in the city of Milwaukee which takes its name from the languages of the first peoples — interpreted as good land and gathering place by the waters. This is a city where blood was shed for labor rights, where a fugitive slave was freed from prison, where women's right to vote was first ratified. But today we gather virtually, however we gather unified in spirit, unified in our values and purpose to heal divisions and together move the nation confidently into a prosperous inclusive future. What better way to gather than all across America, to nominate my beloved friend Joe Biden to be 46th president of the United States of America with my VIP, VP nominee, sister, Kamala Harris by his side. Tonight, we are gathered to reclaim the soul of America. So, if you're ready to come together America, text “join” to 303-30. Thank you, I love you all and God bless you.
