We are thrilled to share that our 2019 National Convening will take place July 26-27 in Detroit, Michigan!

Registration is live! You can register for the National Convening here. 

This is a gathering you don’t want to miss! Each year we gather progressive local elected officials from across the country for a weekend of shared strategy, peer learning, and leadership development. Join us in fighting for communities where all of us, no matter what we look like or where we come from, can live with dignity and the freedom to thrive.

This year, we are initiating a registration fee of $60. If you would like to request a registration fee waiver or would like to pay by check, please get in touch with us by emailing convening@localprogress.org.

***We will also have financial aid avaliable for those who need it for travel and hotel costs. In your registration, please note that you are requesting financial aid when asked.***
