Vast Difference in Diversity of RNC and DNC

Hillary Clinton’s campaign told Fusion that 2,887 of this year’s 4,766 DNC delegates are women. Black men and women account for 1,182 delegates (compared to 18 at the RNC) while 292 are Asian American, 747 are Latinos, 147 Native Americans, and 633 are LGBTQ-identified people. This year’s DNC has at least 27 trans delegates.

On the first night of the DNC, there were 18 black speakers last night. (Coincidentally, that’s exactly as many black delegates at the RNC - TOTAL).
