The State Summit is a mainstay in progressive organizing. This event brings hundreds of state and national experts to Washington, D.C. for two days of strategizing, networking and energizing for the road ahead.

America Votes State Summit 

America Votes is looking forward to convening the State Summit in-person again after almost two years. The Summit convenes in-state experts, strategists, renowned progressive leaders, and many of our partners and allies as we dive into best practices for grassroots mobilization, analyze state-based strategies for issue advocacy and electoral campaigns, and identify key areas of focus in our shared fight to build and maintain progressive power in the states. We can’t wait to reconnect with you in May 2022!
