Democracy Convention

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

This is the central plenary of the 2017 Democracy Convention. We have charged four leading national voices for democracy to take on the challenge of "Overcoming Oppression: Building an Inclusive Democracy Movement." Hear from the Vice Chair of the Democratic Party, Rep. Keith Ellison, in whose district we are gathering, together with the 2012 and 2016 presidential nominee of the Green Party, Dr. Jill Stein, together with Jennifer Epps-Addison, Executive Director of the Center for Popular Democracy and Jacqui Patterson, Director of the NAACP's Environmental and Climate Justice Program. This may be the best set of panelists gathered anywhere all year, facilitated by Timeka Drew and David Cobb of Liberty Tree.
