Description

Help us Build the Democracy Movement

Join us for a revolutionary evening with Lawrence Lessig, Frances Moore Lappé, Cornell William Brooks, and the Democracy Spring team as we explore our vision and strategy of mass nonviolent action to win a democracy that works for all of us.

In April 2016, Democracy Spring activists marched over 120 miles from Philadelphia to Washington DC, followed by a week of mass sit-ins on the steps of the US Capitol where over 1,300 people were arrested simply for demanding an equal voice in our democracy. We organized mass nonviolent action at the DNC; mobilized over 6,000 people in all 50 states to protest the Electoral College; sat-in to protest the nominations of Jeff Sessions and Neil Gorsuch; and helped coordinate national direct action campaigns to stop the Republican healthcare bill and fight for permanent protection for Dreamers.

This year, we plan to build an army of volunteer leaders to take mass nonviolent action against voter suppression and big money in politics ahead of the pivotal midterms elections.

Our democracy is facing a profound crisis of corruption that impacts virtually every issue we care about, from climate change to healthcare, to mass incarceration, to wealth & income inequality. We hope that can you can join us as we hear from movement leaders who are on the front lines fighting for a real and equal democracy.

Enjoy a night of engaging conversation, movement music, wine and light fare, and a full program of incredible speakers, including our hosts, Professor Lawrence Lessig, Frances Moore Lappé, and Reverend Cornell William Brooks. The event will take place at Lawrence Lessig's home.




All registration proceeds go to Democracy Spring to help expand our core staff team so we can organize a national campaign to defend democracy in 2018.
