Event Details

Campaign season is over. It's time to take the next steps in the ongoing fight for progressive change.

Please join us for the first ever Next Steps Conference, organized by AU College Democrats and co-sponsored by the Roosevelt Institute at American University and Eco-Sense.

This conference aims to join progressives for a day of advocacy training, networking, and expert panels on issues that matter to millenials.

This event is free to attend, but we ask for participants to claim a ticket to secure a spot, some lunch, and a badge. Whether you are joining us for a single panel, diligently attending every session, or just stopping by for some coffee, all are welcome!

When attending the event, remember to join in the online conversation using #NextSteps and don't forget to follow AU Dems at @AUCollegeDems.

At every session that you attend, you will receive a ballot for a raffle drawing. Gift baskets with $50 worth of prizes each will be awarded at the closing ceremony.
