Plenary | Love America By Using Our Voices (Sunday, July 15, 11:15 am – 11:45 am ET)
Marianne Williamson, Activist and Lecturer
This year’s midterm elections could not be more critical — but we must do more than address external political issues. We must address the deep, internal causes that have led to our political dysfunction. We cannot just water the leaves of our democracy; we must water it at the roots. In the words of Abraham Lincoln, “we must think anew, and act anew… and then we shall save our country.” Join Marianne Williamson and prepare to go deep into our democracy.

The Honorable David Jolly, Former Member of Congress (R-FL)

We’ll hear from former member of Congress David Jolly on what matters to decision-makers and staff in these meetings, and how to build deep relationships that inspire action. He’ll also talk about the unique role constituents can play in influencing lawmakers.
