People's Convergence Conference

The conference was held at the American University Law School In NW Washington DC. It was an excellent facility with light filled rooms, an auditorium for around 500 and adequate unlimited meeting rooms that were lecture style and comfortable. It had adequate parking under the building that was free for the conference. The conference served box lunches and there were restaurants nearby. The main advantage was that there were at least two excellent hotels less than a 2 miles away for around $100 a room including the Courtyard Marriott with parking. I report this for future reference and use although I heard it was expensive and I am trying to get costs from Nick Brana who arranged it. The crowd was predominantly young and white with a good age range, some seniors and people of color. Socialist Alternative (SA) was a sponsor of this conference and Kshama Sawant of Seattle called for a new party but it appeared that they were not there to build this coalition or a new party. The plenaries were about 200 people, the Friday night meeting was closer to 400 and most of the workshops were around 50 attendees. Continue reading
