Are you concerned about our nation’s current political climate? Discouraged that infighting and bitter partisanship are affecting our ability to move forward?
In America, we appear to be more divided than at any other time in recent history ... and the need for us to come together has never been greater, not just for our own sake but for the good of the world.
The path toward common ground can seem daunting at times — listening to opposing views, searching for mutual understanding and collaborating across party lines toward real solutions. However, there are MANY inspiring, passionate Americans dedicated to reforming our democratic system based on these exact principles.
Citizens just like YOU are working in unison to innovate bold solutions that transcend partisan politics and create platforms where everyone’s voice can be heard and everyone’s vote counts.
And you’re invited to take your place among these brave Americans and help actualize the full power of democracy.
The American Citizens Summit series can help you discover the course toward more positive politics. Many innovative leaders share how to build bridges across divides and implement effective solutions for co-creating our communities and our country.
Discover opportunities to bring about the change you believe is possible, ways to navigate political conversations without polarization, and alternatives that build momentum toward a brighter future for us all.
Join respected political leaders, grassroots visionaries, business pioneers, change agents and advocates — leaders who are committed to putting democratic principles before politics-as-usual — for this unprecedented series.
America was built on the ideals of liberty, equality, individualism, unity AND diversity.
E Pluribus Unum is our national motto and it is time for us to remember the “oneness” at the core of that motto and at the heart of “a more perfect union.”
The first-ever American Citizens Summit draws from the full political spectrum — tapping into the inherent wisdom of our political diversity — so freedom and justice for all CAN prevail. Our challenges are simply too large for us to be locked in bitter squabbling.
Together, we commit to being the kind of everyday civic leaders needed to fulfill the promise of democracy and model healthy dialogue despite potential differences. By uniting unique perspectives and by focusing on common ground and alignment, as opposed to agreement, we can see we are stronger than when only one side “wins.”
You’ll be inspired by the groundbreaking individuals and organizations that are leading the way forward in communities across our country. They’re moving beyond partisanship to create lasting solutions to the critical challenges we’re facing.
Rekindle a sense of deep patriotism, heal partisan wounds and mobilize to move forward in UNITY... because, ultimately, everyone has a role to play if we’re to build a strong, generous, peaceful and prosperous America.
Join the first-ever "American Citizens' Convention" so true democracy can shine its brightest light — for a more beautiful future for ourselves and generations to come.
Another one of our nation’s great strengths is HOPE — our ability to see beyond current limitations or difficult circumstances and envision new possibilities... an open-mindedness that leads to revolutionary solutions. It’s in our country’s DNA!
In a time when opposition and stalemate have become the norm, new leaders and agents for change are emerging to gather around the common themes of respect, kindness, civility and dignity.
Now you have an opportunity to not only discover their wisdom and inspired solutions, but also to join the movement to co-create ideas, actions and initiatives to evolve the political process of our great country.
