The Peoples Summit: A Way Forward for Peoples Power
RoseAnn DeMoro, Executive Director, National Nurses United
Winnie Wong, Founder, People for Bernie & a People s Summit Organizer

So you couldn t attend the Peoples Summit, well we will provide a report back
on the historic convening of organizations and individuals committed to social, racial and economic justice June 17-19, in Chicago to bring together activists
committed to a People s Agenda that can enhance and expand issue campaigns and hold all elected officials accountable to popular demands for justice, equality and freedom. The Summit envisioned as deepening the relationship between participating organizations rooted in principled anti-corporate politics, development of community leaders, direct action not based on partisan identification, and strategic organizing to build power.
The Summit was devoted to key issues such as the Fight for 15, mass incarceration and criminal justice reform, voting rights and expanding democratic participation, a tax on Wall Street speculation to fund human needs and jobs, climate justice toward a sustainable economy, improved Medicare for All, the fight for free and debt-free higher education, secure retirement through expanding social security, ending HIV/AIDS, achieving Constitutional pay equity for women, and ending deportations and support for DREAMers, among others. WOW, that s a heck of an agenda and aspiration and we ll find out how it turned out!
