This Summit will feature an overview of the Task Force, the results from our Survey (which will crowdsource messaging and policy ideas from grassroots groups nationwide), a panel discussion on the future of Democratic messaging, breakout sessions to recruit new members for the “Issue Teams,” messaging discussions with grassroots groups, as well as networking opportunities.
Please complete our Survey so your ideas for a National Message can be heard! And see links to our National Messaging & Policy Task Force Webpage, Survey, and Facebook Ad. Contact Ricardo Coleman or Aileen "Alex" Alex for questions, comments, and volunteer opportunities!
We are inviting elected officials and their representatives, national party staffers, and policy experts to discuss the following areas:
- How elected officials can work with grassroots groups to develop new messages and policies for the 2018 Midterms elections
- The process for crafting an aspirational new message to win back the voters we lost in 2016
- What types of policies and messages will resonate with voters in the Midterms based upon polling data
