Building the Political Revolution | The People’s Summit

You may follow The People’s Summit on livestream. Check the schedule to see what might be most interesting to you. This year the theme is “Building the Political Revolution.”

This is what the The People’s Summit says about itself…

“At a time of tremendous turmoil and progressive opportunity, we invite you to participate in a historic convening of organizations and individuals committed to social, racial and economic justice.  On June 17-19, in Chicago… we seek to bring together activists committed to a different kind of agenda: a People’s Agenda that can enhance and expand issue campaigns and hold all elected officials accountable to popular demands for justice, equality and freedom…”

  • Reblogged this on Three Worlds One Vision and commented:
    Whether or not Bernie Sanders becomes the next president of these United States of America, our political revolution is underway and ongoing. Believe. Have hope. Take part. End hate. End wars.

    If you want to be part of this revolution, tune in to The People’s Summit that is presently underway this weekend, June 17-19, in Chicago, Illinois.

  • JoAnn, thanks again for keeping us on top of our ongoing political revolution. I haven’t yet had the chance to listen to all the presenters, but would like to share these gems of vision and hope.

    “When you separate people… eventually you create a chasm of hate.”
    ~ John Nicols, speaking about the Orlando massacre.

    “We never lose. We always win, because we always rise.”
    ~ John Nicols, recalling the persistence of Eugene Debs, of the Socialist Party of America, who ran five times for president of the USA.
