We the People Summit Announces Next Event

September 19, 2017

The We the People Summit is pleased to announce its second summit which will take place on November 4, 2017 at the Renaissance Phoenix Downtown. The We the People Summit is a series of three summits designed to bring together individuals, grassroots organizations, and established nonprofits to empower, educate, and connect citizens of Arizona who seek progressive change in local and state government.

The second We the People Summit will build upon the resounding success of the first summit on June 24, 2017 held at the Phoenix Convention Center. Over 1,500 people attended 36 sessions ranging from the History of Movements to the basics of Campaign Finance and Getting Your Activist Group Street Legal. The second summit will focus on hands-on tools and techniques for advancing a cause along with the issue topics such as Social Justice, the Environment, Public Education, and Healthcare. The We the People Summit will empower people to make a difference in our community and enable our voices to be heard in local and state government.

The We the People Summit is a grassroots organization that was created and is led by three women who stood up during this awakening in order to enact change in their local community. Jennifer Jermaine is a co-founder of Stronger Together AZ and the STAZ Advocacy Network, which were birthed from the national Pantsuit Nation movement. The two organizations have a membership of more than 9,000 Arizonans from across the political spectrum with a focus on local and state-level issues in Arizona. Murphy Bannerman was a co-organizer of the Women’s March Phoenix and is the co-founder of Arizona for Social Justice which is focused on racial and social justice in Arizona. Tricia Sauer is the founder of Civic Engagement Beyond Voting, a group focused on training, development, and connecting grassroots groups in Arizona. The We the People Summit is a coalition of their groups and the steering committee includes representatives from established activist and nonprofit organizations throughout Arizona.

Tickets to the second Summit are now available www.wethepeoplesummit.com. Early bird pricing is in effect until October 15th, with General Admission set at $35 and Student Admission for $20. The summit is also accepting scholarship donations should you or your organization wish to support another attendee. Additionally, there are many sponsorship opportunities available to businesses and organizations searching for creative and interactive ways to tap into the groundswell movement in Arizona and reach new, loyal and active customers.

Together, we can change Arizona.
