Sen. Bernie Sanders Headlines All Star Lineup at Big Gathering of Progressive Activists in Chicago


Sen. Bernie Sanders keynotes a major gathering of several thousand progressive activists from across the U.S. in Chicago June 9 to 11 under a thematic of moving beyond resistance to a building a broad people’s movement for a just world.

This year’s program features concrete steps for further progressive movement building, including candidate training, independent political action, civil disobedience, educational workshops, and unity in mass actions.

Another highlight is “The People Speak” featuring an all-star lineup of actors and musicians celebrating the often neglected history of the United States. Performers will include Hong Chau, Jesse Eisenberg, Frances Fisher, Laura Gomez, Brian Jones, Melissa Leo, Aasif Mandvi, Susan Pourfar, Kendrick Sampson, and Wallace Shawn.

Convening organizations include National Nurses United, People’s Action, United Students Against Sweatshops, People for Bernie, Our Revolution, United Electrical Workers, Color of Change, Progressive Democrats of America, and Democratic Socialists of America, and Million Hoodies.
