“You build skyscrapers. I build in the cloud. But it’s clear you don’t understand something simple about business: what scares away investment is hate.” (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
Founder of Sharefile Jesse Lipson spoke at length about how Trump's perceived discrimination, and laws that pin the LGBT community against equal rights, actually cost the communities that tech companies are working to enrich.“I’m a ninth generation American from a small town in South Texas. And if you know your history, Texas used to be part of Mexico. My family never crossed a border. The border crossed us.” (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
Actress Eva Longoria told the crowd that when Donald Trump insults some Mexicans in the derogatory fashion she perceives, he insults all of them. She called Hillary Clinton the "most qualified presidential candidate ever" and said it's time to fight for her.“This is the high call of patriotism. Patriotism is love of country. But you can’t love your country without loving your countrymen and countrywomen. We don’t always have to agree, but we must empower each other, we must find the common ground, we must build bridges across our differences to pursue the common good.” (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
Sen. Cory Booker's speech was ambitious, calling into spirit Maya Angelou and some of the great orators before him when he delivered prepared remarks before reverberating cheers in the Philadelphia delegations. Booker stated, "We will rise."“In this election, and every election, it is about who will have the power to shape our children for the next four to eight years of their lives, and I am here tonight because in this election there is only one person I trust with that responsibility.” (AP Photo/J.

The First Lady of the United States delivered a fiery speech that denounced Donald Trump without ever actually naming him. She encouraged the crowd in Philadelphia to fight for Hillary Clinton, a "true public servant," because she won't buckle under pressure and will fight for families to have better lives in America.“What kind of a man acts like this? What kind of a man roots for an economic crash that cost millions of people their jobs, their homes, their life savings? I’ll tell you what kind of a man. A man who must never be president of the United States.” (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
Elizabeth Warren delivered a rousing speech, with strong attacks directed at Donald Trump and hit key points in the populist agenda championed by both Warren and Bernie Sanders that brought young Americans across the country into the democratic process over the primary season.“This election is about ending the 40-year decline of our middle class the reality that 47 million men, women and children live in poverty. It is about understanding that if we do not transform our economy, our younger generation will likely have a lower standard of living then their parents.” (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
It took several minutes for the cheers of "Bernie, Bernie" to end before the wild-haired senator could delivered his remarks, which echoed many of his campaign themes that focused on wealth inequality and social justice. To end the speech, he told the delegations that the nation must elect Hillary Clinton and he'll do everything he can to make that happen.
