Rock the Congress

March 24, 2018
8:30 am
Balboa High School

Join Bay Area activists in a day-long conference dedicated to building a strong, lasting coalition of organizations laser-focused on winning elections and regaining control of Congress! The Rock the Congress conference features intensive training sessions on topics such as direct action tactics (e.g., canvassing, phone and text banking, voter registration, postcards), social media and campaign technology, and media and messaging. Featured speakers include Pod Save America's Dan Pfeiffer, CA State Controller Betty Yee, and Congressman Eric Swalwell. You'll also get updates on crucial races and have the chance to network with leading organizers working on the 2018 midterms. Two tracks are dedicated to "Coalition" workshops, which provide opportunities for leaders to roll up their sleeves and dive right into coalition-building efforts on the spot. We'll be developing action plans for November. Help us build an unstoppable coalition! We stand in solidarity with our youth and fellow activists who are rallying to force our elected officials to finally take action and stop the continued mass murders that have taken the lives of so many in our country. Therefore, we have incorporated programming such as a workshop on how to advocate for better gun laws, featuring Moms Demand Action - a movement that has been working nationwide to decrease gun violence since 2012. That training, along with others that will be useful for young activists, is scheduled in the morning so that attendees may participate in March for Our Lives (an easy BART ride away) in the afternoon.
