Democracy Convention

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

A convergence of all the conferences of the Democracy Convention in a People's Movement Assembly! We're all coming together in a mass, participatory discussion about the current moment and the larger period in which we find ourselves, and most importantly, what actions we can and should take together in the coming months and years -- ultimately how to codify our movement demands as rights in the U.S. Constitution and beyond. Make plans to be part of this historic strategic deliberation! 

A People’s Movement Assembly (PMA) is a gathering of people to:

  • Collectively develop a political analysis of the current moment and the systemic root causes of our problems.
  • Come up with visions of the world we want and to create plans to get there, considering short, medium, and long-term demands.
  • Create and coordinate related collective actions, campaigns, and strategic movement agendas.

The People's Movement Assembly (PMA) process was inspired by the Social Movement Assembly launched at the World Social Forum in 2003 and was launched in the United States at the first U.S. Social Forum in 2007. To learn more about the People's Movement Assembly go to
