  • One of the goals of the second Summit is to highlight the interconnection of issues our communities are facing. We will include multiple perspectives as we delve into our discussions and this work. For example, we have an obligation to look at how factors like race, social class, geographic location and gender influence an individual’s ability to access health care. We are striving to achieve and share an inclusive, intersectional perspective.

    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 Summit will focus on calls to action with hands-on tools and techniques for advancing a cause. Participants will be connected with local activists so that together they may take the next steps towards solving problems within their communities.

    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. Sponsorship opportunities remain 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.
