For those attending: There is no air conditioning in the building. Please make adequate preparations.

Join The People’s Revolution Saturday July 23rd, 2016 at the Arch Street Meeting House at 4th and Arch Street in Philadelphia for The People’s Convention.

In July, TPR will convene The People’s Convention in Philadelphia, a grassroots attempt to reclaim our democracy by uniting behind a common policy framework, rather than a personality or party. Leading up to our first People’s Convention this summer, grassroots organizers from around the country will work together to formulate a People’s Platform: a unifying set of ideas, beliefs, and values that will help define the movement.

This platform will also serve as a critical mechanism to hold elected officials accountable; public representatives who pledge to uphold this platform, but fail to do so through their votes and other public behaviors, will no longer be eligible to seek endorsement or support from The People’s Revolution.

As a growing movement, there will be space for grassroots organizers and organizations to network and strengthen relationships for future partnerships and expansion. This powerful collaboration will establish the foundation for a growing movement seeking to transform American politics by reigniting the power of the people!

This declaration will detail our intent to move our country forward as a more peaceful, productive, equitable, inclusive, and sustainable America. This historical effort is open to the public. We want to hear from you, and we need your help. Here’s how you can get involved:
