America Votes State Summit 


Thank you for your interest in the America Votes State Summit! The summit, which celebrated its tenth year in 2019, is a mainstay in progressive organizing, annually bringing together hundreds of state-based organizers, national political strategists, donors and others from across the progressive independent expenditure community. Each year, attendees gather in Washington, D.C. to dive into best practices for grassroots mobilization, analyze state-based strategies for issue advocacy and electoral campaigns, and identify key areas of focus in the shared fight to build progressive power in states across the country.


Summit attendees have the opportunity to hear from longstanding progressive champions as well as emerging movement leaders, dig deeper into best practices and lessons learned in critical breakout sessions, and make lasting connections with folks from across the progressive space. To get a taste of all that State Summit attendees experience, take a look at the agenda from the State Summit 2019, which included remarks from the Honorable Stacey Abrams, Oregon Governor Kate Brown and Winners Take All author Anand Giridharadas, among many other inspiring speakers. 2019 session topics included political power-building in communities of color, restoring and reclaiming the nation’s democracy, winning from the local level up and much more.

State Summit 2020 updates will be posted to this page as they become available. Please email if you have any questions in the meantime, and America Votes hopes to see you at next year’s event!
