Democracy Convention

Democracy is coming... to the U.S.A.

Democracy Convention III: August 2-6, Minneapolis

If you want to strengthen democracy where it matters most ... in our communities, our schools, our workplaces and local economies, our military, our government, our media, our constitution ... you will find something inspiring in Minneapolis, Minnesota this August 2-6, 2017. Join us at the third Democracy Convention.

More than one conference, the Democracy Convention houses many conferences under one roof, as well as cross-conference tracks and plenaries. As the great progressive reformer Fighting Bob La Follette said, "democracy is a life," and "involves constant struggle" in all sectors of society. With the Democracy Convention, we recognize the importance of each of these separate democracy struggles, as well as the need to unite them all in a common, deeply rooted, broad based, movement for democracy.
