The People’s Convention 2020
The People’s Convention was a Smashing Success!
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.
