Over the last few months, Arizona has been experiencing a political awakening with citizen involvement growing and outrage reaching a high. We the People Summits are designed to provide education and resources to each unique call to action. We strive to make progressive change in Arizona by listening to the voices of our citizens and activating them through collaborative efforts and targeted workshops.

We the People is a series of three summits designed to bring together individuals, grassroots organizations, and established nonprofits to collaborate in forming a message and support of progressive values to effect change in Arizona. ​
