Building Mass Membership Organizations to Countervail Oligarchic Power in the US (closed convening)

November 10th and 11th, 2022

The Action Lab

Convened by Working Families, The Action Lab, the Social and Economic Justice Leaders Project, and the Initiative for Community Power at NYU in collaboration with The Forge and The American Prospect, the gathering will bring together organizers, policymakers, journalists and academics to examine power-building policies that make it easier to build pro-democracy, mass-membership organizations and that strengthen the position of those organizations, and their members, in society. The focus will be on policies that we can envision passing within the next five years that would make it easier to build power and strengthen democratic engagement over time.
