People’s Power Summit to Build Community Power!
Community members from throughout Wisconsin and Beyond will be gathering for a two day People’s Summit in June, 2021 to build power!

MANITOWOC, Wis., May 10, 2021 – Community members from across Wisconsin and throughout the country will be gathering in Maribel, WI on June 11 and 12 for a two-day People’s Power Summit event. Participants will be coming from Detroit, Boston, New Jersey, Denver, Milwaukee, Virginia and from across Wisconsin.

The event will be a chance to continue building a mutually empowering network of progressive organizations and community members and will feature cultural events, local artists, workshops, and more.

There will be Indigenous presentations as well. Longtime activist Mr. Larry Hales from the People’s United Front in New Jersey, will be the keynote speaker Saturday evening.

The public is invited to attend but individuals must register: http://peoplespowersummit.org/. Suggested donation is $15 per day.

“I’m participating in the People’s Power Summit to help bring change to Wisconsin, to fight for an equitable society. I’m fighting to reclaim our states’ progressive legacy and to fight for fair wages across the board. But most importantly, I’m participating to stand in solidarity with those who have been the target of prejudice and racism throughout our society and to guarantee that we can start a movement which will spread across the state,” said Henry Pahlow, Youth Leader on the People’s Power Summit Coordinating Committee.

Things are already bad — and they are about to get a lot worse if we don’t fight back and build our people power! The summer uprisings of 2020 have demonstrated what the people are capable of when mobilized. The people must be prepared to build diverse alliances to defend ourselves against the life-threatening and ever-intensifying economic and social misery that Wall Street and its politicians are imposing on us, including endless war, the senseless murder of Black and Brown people by the state, and almost no relief from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The People’s Power Summit is an independent initiative to fight for the rights of the poor and working people, including jobs, education, housing, food security, and healthcare. We struggle against racism, sexism, and low wages. We oppose war and U.S. interventions abroad. We support the LGBTQ community, Black Lives Matter, the Indigenous, immigrant rights, family farmers, and unions. We fight for the environment and believe Water IS Life. We are building our power!

This event will be family friendly. Social distancing and masking is required. No alcohol or other drugs or firearms are allowed on the farm where the event is taking place.

More details about the full schedule will be forthcoming and will be posted: http://peoplespowersummit.org/
