On Sun‌day, the 2017 California Democrats State Convention wrapped up in Sacramento!

Thousands of delegates and guests gathered together to show the nation that #CaliforniaLeads — and to map out how we can continue to fight for progress, together.

Here are a few of the many highlights from the #CADEM17 convention weekend:
