The People's 2020 National (virtual) Assembly

Organizer: The People

On an otherwise average weekend in May of 2019, 100 people from around the country - representing every state and a diverse range of beliefs, backgrounds and demographics - came together to voice their hopes and concerns, and create the Declaration of The People.

Did you serve as a delegate in D.C.? Have you since joined our effort? Are you looking for a chance to connect or a place to find common ground? Whatever your answers, we invite you to join us to celebrate the anniversary of our 1st National Assembly, talk about how far we've come since, and set our path forward.

The world has changed a lot since that weekend last May, but in this time of uncertainty and isolation the value of finding common ground has become increasingly clear. While we may not be able to come together in the same room, mark your calendars and join us virtually (online or over the phone) to share some memories and work on our next steps.
