Democracy Convention

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

The workshop will be broken into three sections: a brief review of how Revolt Against Plutocracy built the Bernie or Bust movement online, an outline of how we intend to use the Internet to teach leverage activists to replicate our efforts in congressional districts for the 2018 midterms and a brainstorming period.  The second section will include a description of a new innovation, a Contract For American Renewal (CFAR, pronounced See FAR); and the last section will call on workshop participants to convey effective strategies they know of for successful electioneering. The intention is to get progressives elected to Congress and, barring that, defeat all neo-liberal Democrats who win their primaries.
