Liberty Tree Foundation

Foundation for the Democratic Revolution

Thank you for all of your support in helping make Democracy Convention 2017 a success! Whether you attended, donated, sponsored, shared information about the Convention or watched a live stream online this year, you helped bring together hundreds of organizers and activists from around the country committed to working across democracy sectors to bring about the system change we envision. In more than 150 sessions across eight conferences and two unique tracks, democracy movement leaders talked about the problems we face, lessons we have learned, strategies for the future and plans for action within a strong, united democracy movement.

Even if you were unable to join us this year, please take a moment to give us your thoughts about the Democracy Convention process in a brief survey. Your responses will help us determine next steps and will focus our planning for future Conventions.
