2012 ADA Convention

Americans for Democratic Action has a long history of fighting to preserve and expand the New Deal, the landmark investment in America. Now is the time for a New Deal 2.0. Since 2005, Working Families Win, a project of ADA, has had organizers in key areas to help drive policy and elect representatives. In this important election year of 2012, ADA and Working Families Win are meeting not only to change the political and policy landscapes but to shift the public debate and ideology back to one that reflects shared prosperity and public action toward the common good.

Please mark your calendars and register today for the 63rd ADA National Convention, to be held this year at the University of Illinois Chicago on June 15-17.  (There will be a preregistration and networking reception on Thursday, June 14 at the Exchequer Pub in the Chicago Loop from 7 to 9.)
