  • Democratizing Education Network
  • Bring the Guard Home Campaign
  • Global Climate Convergence
  • No More Stolen Elections!
  • Wisconsin Wave
  • The Democracy Convention
  • and the movement to codify that corporations are not people and money is not speech
In honor of our ten year anniversary we invite you to join us in Boston on November 6th for the launch of the "10,000 for Democracy" membership drive designed to take the U.S. democracy struggle to the next level.
 
On the agenda will be a discussion of the latest developments in the national and global democracy movements, as well as updates about Liberty Tree's current priorities including building Community Democracy, planning the third Democracy Convention, and organizing towards a People's Climate Strike.
