On the final night of the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton will take the stage to formally accept her party’s nomination. But not before a bevy of speakers stand up and speak on her behalf, highlighting issues facing women with a strong emphasis on workplace fairness and pay.

Among those speakers is Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, who will introduce her mother to close out the evening, mirroring Ivanka Trump introducing her father at the RNC.

Themed “Stronger Together,” the DNC reveals “Hillary will speak about her vision for our country  —  her belief that we are stronger together and that America is at its best when we work together to solve our problems.”

The list of Thursday’s key primetime speakers:

  • Hillary Clinton: the Democratic Party’s nominee for President of the United States
  • Chelsea Clinton: daughter of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton
  • John Allen: retired general
  • Henrietta Ivey: Henrietta is a home care worker helping to lead the Fight for $15.
  • Beth Mathias: Beth works two jobs and her husband works the night shift at a factory in Ohio.
  • Jensen Walcott and Jake Reed: Jensen was fired from her job at a pizza restaurant in Bonner Springs, Kansas, for asking her boss why she was paid 25 cents less than her male co-worker and friend, Jake.
  • Khizr Khan: Khan’s son was one of 14 American Muslims who died serving the United States in the 10 years after the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
  • Candidates of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee
  • Chad Griffin: President of the Human Rights Campaign
  • Gene Karpinski: League of Conservation Voters President
  • Sean Patrick Maloney: Co-Chair of the Congressional LGBT Equality Caucus Congressman from New York
