The Coffee Party Convention will take place in Louisville, KY September 24-26.

I look forward to joining you for three unforgettable days of collaboration with some of America's most respected thinkers and most innovative organizers, who are willing to take on leadership in this critical chapter in our nation's history.

We have participants and guests coming from all over the country to join our mission to counter the alienating hyper-partisanship undermining our political process, and address the serious problems facing our nation today. Please view our convention schedule here: http://www.democracymeetup.com/schedule/

By coming together in Louisville, we will lay the groundwork for a lasting movement to revitalize civic participation and restore balance to our political discourse.

If you need financial assistance to attend, please email us at hardship@democracymeetup.com.

Your donations will make possible the attendance of our incredibly talented core of college students organizing Coffee Party U, and make possible such luxuries as live-streaming the conference for those who want to participate at home.
