Announcing the third Move to Amend National Leadership Summit! 

Join grassroots organizers from all over the country to converge on Washington, DC June 21 - June 24, 2019!

We are at a critical time in so many ways:

Climate change.
Trumpism/fascism.
Outrageous wealth inequality.
Collapsing economic and political systems.

Our actions matter more than ever. It is time to act to END corporate rule, and FREE the People!

Move to Amend's We the People Amendment is essential for nearly every critical change we need:

The Green New Deal.
Medicare for All.
A Living Wage.
Saving Our Democracy

...all require us to end the corporate hijacking of our Constitution!

To match the urgency of our times, this year's Leadership Summit and National Lobby Day will be bigger and more important that ever!

This event is the very best way to connect with other grassroots leaders of the movement to amend.

Help us strategize. Develop your organizing skills. Find out what is working in other communities. Join us on Capitol Hill to demand accountability from your Congressperson.

Take it all in, build power with others, and then take it home to grow the democracy movement momentum in your community! 

We can't wait to see you there and make it happen!

The conference will begin at 12pm on Friday, June 21 with plenaries and workshop sessions through the weekend, and end with a National Lobby Day on Monday, June 24 where we will storm the halls of Congress to lobby our representatives to co-sponsor the We The People Amendment! The event will end by 3pm on Monday.
