Day 3 highlights from St. Louis

Day 3 highlights from St. Louis

Here’s a few quick highlights from our last day of programming:

Secretary Clinton addressed attendees via video message, announcing that she intends to back a constitutional amendment overturning Citizens United. She also addressed issues in our country’s police system, promising to bring law enforcement and communities together to develop national guidelines on the use of force and committing to target $1 billion in her first budget to take on implicit bias.

Attendees stood in solidarity with local organizers at the Old Courthouse—where the Dred Scott case was heard—at an action organized by local group Hands Up United.

Saturday morning’s keynote with Rep. Jan Schakowsky, Pamela Merritt, Laura Jimenez, Aimee Thorne-Thompson and Lizz Winstead focused on the state of abortion access and reproductive justice. Click here to watch the archived stream and check out our Medium wrap-up.
