We The People Summit is a series of three summits designed to bring together individuals, grassroots organizations, and established nonprofits to collaborate

in support of positive change in Arizona.

Over the last few months, we have seen a political awakening in the state of Arizona. Thousands have begun to get involved with our government in new and innovative ways. Each has a unique voice calling for an action, a change, or a priority that emphasizes improving lives and offering residents of Arizona better opportunities. The We the People Summit series will bring these individuals and groups together to begin a conscious collaboration for a better Arizona. We will focus on providing people with skills and knowledge on how to grow their movement, advocate to representatives, build an inclusive movement, and make your movement sustainable.

We will have 36 classes and 300 organizations will be in attendance allowing for people to get connected and plugged in. A few of the sponsors include:

Children's Action Alliance
Arizona List
​Arizona Democratic Party
Stronger Together AZ
New American Community, Inc.
Arizonans for Gun Safety
​Fortitude Consulting
Valley Unitarian Universalist Congregation

Classes will focus on teaching organizing, action, and knowledge and will include information about running for office, citizen lobbying, the citizen initiative process, etc.
