The America Votes State Summit is a staple in progressive organizing, attracting hundreds of attendees from across the country. Since 2009, this event has convened in-state experts, national political strategists, funders and organizational allies to analyze our challenges ahead and specific state-based strategies to win issue and election campaigns. Featured experts each year examine best practices of progressive mobilization and grassroots coordination from past cycles, and constructively identify areas the progressive movement needs to emphasize for future success.

…and by building a year-round coalition that makes the progressive community stronger.

Since 2003, America Votes has built a diverse and lasting coalition of issue organizations working to achieve our common goals.
