The Women's March organization is holding a convention in Detroit on October 27-29 (Friday-Sunday): "an inaugural conference that will bring thousands of women and femmes of all backgrounds" together for "three days of workshops, strategy sessions, inspiring forums and intersectional movement building." Base registration fee is $295 but there are scholarships available.

I C&Pd the registration link, if it doesn't work try womensmarch.com.

Democracy in Color and the American Majority Project Research Institute just released their roadmap for retaking the House and state legislatures through mobilizing progressive voters in key states.

Their report focuses on the 17 states and 13 congressional districts that Democrats won or lost by single-digit percentages in 2016. Their perspective is that rather than trying to persuade white swing voters, we should work on getting minorities and other progressives who don't vote (yet) to actually get to the polls.

They link to a number of local and state organizations that have proven success in registering and mobilizing new voters, and want to expand those and start similar organizations in other states that need them.

There's a great overview article about it at The Nation.
