A nationwide reckoning with racial injustice. A global pandemic and widespread economic devastation. Threats on our democracy. With the election of our lives just around the corner, we know that progressive change can’t wait. How do we take the urgency and the momentum of this political moment to the polls in November? What will it take to mobilize voters across the country so that we win—resoundingly—up and down the ballot? Join us for our opening keynote, where you’ll get to meet three bold progressive candidates who are fighting to usher in a new era of progressive leadership, and hear from one of the country’s top leaders on election reform, voter suppression and fair elections.

Speakers include: Netroots Nation Board Member Arshad Hasan; Congressman Joe Neguse; Maurice Mitchell of Working Families Party; candidates Jamaal Bowman, Mondaire Jones and Summer Lee; Jessica Byrd of Three Point Strategies and Stacey Abrams of Fair Fight Action.
