Democracy Convention Final Invitation

Received this late yesterday...

One thousand caring, committed people, ready for democracy.
Hundreds of workshops and panels.
Two hundred presenters.
Nine conferences.
Five days.
One Convention.

It all begins tomorrow. If you are moved to walk, pedal, drive, locomotive, or fly to downtown Madison, do it. Because the world begins again tomorrow.

At noon, registration opens up at the Atrium of the downtown campus of Madison (Area Technical) College. Come on down, check in, get your commemorative button (and name tag). Meet other convention goers. Visit the people staffing the informational, book, and chotchke tables.

At 7:00pm, the Call for Peace Drum and Dance troop open the convention with inspiration. They will immediately be followed by Madison Mayor Paul Soglin's welcome to the city. And then our two incredible keynote speakers, Tom Hayden and Cheri Honkala.

The convention runs through Sunday. You will be amazed at the intensity and breadth of the offerings at this gathering. I hope you'll also note that everything at the convention comes back to one common challenge: Building a democracy movement for the U.S.A..

We have posted everything on the website. Check it all out at

And then --depending on where you hail from-- come on down, over, or up to the Democracy Convention in Madison.

In Solidarity,

Ben Manski
Executive Director, Liberty Tree
Chair, Democracy Convention
