“Many Small People in Small Places Doing Small Things Can Change

the World”

Eduardo Galeano

The PEOPLE’S CONVENTION was a smashing success!

More than 400,000 people tuned in to the People’s Convention on August 30. A stellar line-up of speakers delivered a message of hope and determination, urging us onward toward our goal of building a new party free of corporate influence and power. A montage of video messages recorded by people from all walks of life, from all around the country, all telling their story, rounded out the convention message: “We need a People’s Party.”

During the coming year our members will draft a platform and decide on an official name for our party. Our organizing teams are already hard at work building local hubs, establishing a presence, and gaining ballot access. In 2021 we will be hosting our founding convention to establish the party, ready to run candidates in the 2022 midterms. In 2024 America will finally have the opportunity to elect a President who will serve the People.

A New People’s Party

We Are Building a Party that Works for US

Our vision is a major new progressive populist party that will deliver what regular people take for granted in so many other countries: single-payer health care, free public college, money out of politics, an infrastructure jobs program, a $15 minimum wage, financial regulations, and more.

We need actual representation in our government. A majority of people in the US don’t feel represented by either the Democratic or Republican parties. We’ve watched these parties turn their backs on us to answer every call of the billionaires and donors. Overwhelming numbers of Americans understand these parties cannot be salvaged. Polls show that almost two out of three Americans are now calling for a major new party. It’s time to build the party we’re looking for — one that brings us all together.
