Standing Up (By Sitting in) To Save American Democracy
From Selma to Seneca Falls, from Stonewall to Ferguson, the history of American progress is marked by the moments when We the People come together to stand up for what is right. Movement moments. From five-million signer petitions, to State House resolutions, to ballot initiatives advancing fair elections, there is a growing movement in the US demanding solutions to our deeply corrupt political system.

A One-Day Conference
In the name of national security, our country's policies are causing multiple, systemic crises. These include climate catastrophe, extreme inequality, constant wars, deep-seated racism, mass incarceration, and a militarized culture.
Only large social movements can remove these barriers to genuine security and construct a society based on Sustainable Security.
This conference will explore three pillars of sustainable national and world security:
- A fairly-shared global prosperity based on economic, social, and racial justice
- Emergency action to address climate change and build a new, fossil-fuel-free energy system
- A Foreign Policy for All based on even-handed diplomacy, ending our disastrous military interventions, abolition of nuclear weapons, and reclaiming war resources for the urgent needs that face our world
Join Us! in this effort to strategize, collaborate and mobilize for effective action together.
