The People's Summit: LIVE from Chicago

Common Dreams staff

Thousands of progressive activists are gathering in Chicago this weekend to cultivate strategies and foster intersectionality for moving "beyond resistance" to "a people's movement for a just world."

The three-day People's Summit, headlined by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), kicked off Friday, bringing together those committed to an agenda "that can enhance and expand issue campaigns and hold all elected officials accountable to popular demands for justice, equality, and freedom."
