As the RNC winds down, the DNC is revving up. Lena Dunham, Katy Perry, and America Ferrera are among the celebrities heading to the Democratic National Convention, which kicks off in Philadelphia on July 25.
The creator and star of Girls posted a selfie with Ferrera and a “Love Trumps Hate” shirt on Instagram. “My soul sister [America Ferrera] and I are headed to the Democratic National Convention to speak as a team in support of [Hillary Clinton],” she wrote. “The honor! The thrill! We promise not to copy off Michelle Obama’s homework, dreamy as she is.”
“You better believe I’ll be @DemConvention to see @HillaryClinton accept the nomination,” Dunham tweeted earlier this week.
Perry also announced her upcoming appearance on Twitter, writing, “#1 fan over here will be in Philly nxt week using my voice 2 support [Hillary Clinton]!”
Other celebs who will appear include Demi Lovato, Eva Longoria, Star Jones, former NBA stars Jason Collins and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Alicia Keys, Scandal president Tony Goldwyn, The Cosby Show vet Erika Alexander, and the previously announced Chloë Grace Moretz and Debra Messing.
Elsewhere, Lady Gaga, Lenny Kravitz, and DJ Jazzy Jeff are set to headline a DNC concert at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey, not too far from the convention space.
A statement from the DNC reads, “While Republican leadership continues to run away from Donald Trump, and refuse to participate in the upcoming Republican convention, the Democratic convention will showcase enormously popular national leaders, rising stars from across the country, and a diverse range of everyday Americans who will inspire the nation.”
