Latino Leaders, Bernie Sanders Supporters Speak at DNC: Crash The Parties 2016

Fuse and Voto Latino have teamed up for Crash the Parties, giving two aspiring reporters the chance to cover the 2016 Democratic and Republican National Conventions. Arlene Santana is covering the DNC in Philadelphia this week, and on the day Hillary Clinton was officially nominated for president, she spoke to an array of supporters, including many Latinos who see the Democratic ticket as a beacon of hope.

Watch above as Arlene stops by the Latino Leaders Luncheon in Philly to discuss the major issues with several standout speakers, including former secretary of labor Hilda Solis. "Many of us play a key role now, helping to get out the vote, and really relaying very basically why it's important to exercise your right to vote," Solis explains. Then, Arlene stops by a panel aimed at millennial females hosted by The Atlantic and Refinery 29, in which distinguished speakers encouraged young women to "own their power."

At the end of a busy day, Arlene spoke to several Bernie Sanders supporters outside the Wells Fargo Center about "fighting for democracy" and why they're still protesting. Watch all the action below.

Keep it locked on Fuse.tv and Crashtheparties16.com this week for the rest of the Democratic National Convention. And be sure to follow @fusetv on Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat for further coverage of the DNC.
