Democracy Convention

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

Who Decides About War?

2009 began with a national gathering of the Bring the Guard Home movement in Washington D.C. on January 21st, the day after President Obama’s first inauguration. In addition to a press conference at the National Press Club, activists held a strategy meeting at which they developed plans for mutual support of their state legislative campaign and also a national conference to be held later that year.

Democratize Everything

Liberty Tree’s major work in 2006 employed local democracy to develop a new program area, Democratizing Defense. Liberty Tree provided legal, media, and other key strategic support to organizers in Wisconsin, Illinois, Massachusetts, and California who wanted to bring the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan home by placing anti-war ballot measures on municipal, town, and county ballots.
