Full Program

More than one conference, this first Democracy Convention houses nine conferences under one roof. As the great Wisconsin progressive Fighting Bob La Follette said, "democracy is a life," and "involves constant struggle" in all sectors of society. With the 2011 Democracy Convention, we recognize the importance of each of these separate democracy struggles, as well as the need to unite them all in a common, deeply rooted, broad based, movement for democracy.

Each Democracy Convention conference features a combination of workshops, panels, and plenary sessions convened by a separate coalition of organizations. You can check here for the full program, but we urge you to identify one or two conferences in which to focus your energies. You can find their schedules by clicking on their links on the home page.
