Organizing for Resistance.

Register today. Click here.

We are all confronting a new reality. With the new administration, our communities are facing dangerous times. While we are saddened, angry and afraid, we are stronger when standing together, collectively. Join us as we stand together, and pledge our mutual solidarity to forge ahead and lean on each other in this critical moment. We know the road to justice is long and hard, but together we are unstoppable.

We are transforming this year’s Keystone Progress Summit to reflect that new reality. We will focus our workshops and panels on organizing for resistance.

We will affirm to ourselves and one another that despite the outcome of this election, we will not give up. No matter what challenges confront us in the times to come, we will stand with one another and defend our communities — across race, class, religion, gender, age, ability, national origin, immigration status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and all of our identities. The fight for a nation with liberty and justice for all–and with an economy and democracy that work for everyone–continues.

Here’s a sampling of our likely highlights from our Saturday schedule:

  • Rural Organizing, with national leaders in progressive rural organizing
  • Grassroots Funding for the Resistance
  • Crisis Communications
  • Saving our Democracy from a Post-Truth World
  • Direct Action 101: When, Why and How to Escalate
  • If Trump Replaces Obamacare, Let’s Make Sure It’s Single Payer
  • Foundations Tell Us How They Will Fund the Resistance
  • Student Action: Integrating Student Organizing into Your Local Work
  • Five Things Every Nonprofit Should Know About Advocacy
  • Dozens more.(This is list is subject to change. Most sessions will be on Saturday, February 18.  Some advanced sessions will be held on Friday, 2/17.  The Keystone Progress Leadership Assembly will be held on Sunday.)
