WASHINGTON (July 19, 2016) — The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) will host pro-manufacturing events at the Republican National Convention (RNC) July 18-21 in Cleveland and during the Democratic National Convention, July 25-28 in Philadelphia.
At the RNC, the AAM will host its “Keep it Made in America” tent just outside the Quicken Loans Arena, the alliance said. AAM officials will chat with convention-goers about ways to promote and expand American manufacturing jobs.
The AAM also will exhibit American-made goods in the tent, including a 3D-printed, life-size statue of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, it said. AAM officials will speak at a number of state delegation breakfasts, sharing with local, state and national lawmakers the issues that the alliance believes must be on their policy agendas, it said.
At the Democratic convention, the AAM will host a town hall meeting titled “Rebuilding the Middle Class” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art,
Gene Sperling, economic adviser to presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, will be the keynote speaker, the alliance said. AAM President Scott Paul will emcee the event, and United Steelworkers International President Leo Gerard will be among the speakers, it said.
