Democracy Convention

This past summer, we attended the Democracy Convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  It was a busy and interesting 4 days of workshops, lectures, and presentations on a wide range of issues and topics; from peace studies to monetary policy, human rights to a discussion of the viability of blockchain technology.

The event is organized by the Liberty Tree Foundation and this was their third such convention.  This conference included such well-known participants as Gar Alperovitz, Dr. Jill Stein, David Cobb, Jacqui Patterson, Medea Benjamin, and many others.

Many of the topics discussed at the convention relate directly or indirectly to issues we here at The Center have been involved with since our founding.  We hope you find the insights, stories, information, and resources we share here interesting and useful.
