RSVP For The MoveOn Philadelphia Organizing Summit!

Join hundreds of other local progressives for two days of fun and activism in Philadelphia!

MoveOn staff and leaders are coming to Philadelphia for two days of top-notch training. You'll bring an issue that you care about -- school closings, gun violence, or any state or national issue you're passionate about. We'll go over how to develop a campaign strategy, how to pull off a successful press conference or meeting with an elected official, and how to use an online petition to build your network and power your campaign. Already working on an issue? This summit will give you a new tool set to help power your campaign even further.

The training is two days and free to attend for any local progressive. Lunch and refreshments will be provided both days and travel assistance is available to those in need.

Space is limited, so submit your RSVP below to save a spot!

Privacy Policy

We do not share the information you’ve given us with unaffiliated groups without your explicit permission.

Petitions and Surveys

For petitions and surveys you've signed or completed, we treat your name, city, state, and comments as public information - for example, we may provide compilations of petitions, with your comments, to the President and legislators, other targets, or to the press. We will not make your street address publicly available, but we may transmit it to members of Congress and to the President as part of a petition. This is a standard industry practice in such situations. In no such case will we disclose your email address or phone number without your permission. We may also make your comments, along with your first name, city, and state available to the press and public online.

Under circumstances where we determine that members may be misusing our systems for malicious purposes (for example, using the numbers we provide to make harassing phone calls), such activities may be reported to law enforcement agencies. In such cases, MoveOn may release personally identifiable information, including name and address, to those agencies.

Phone Campaigns

From time to time, MoveOn.org Political Action staff members, volunteers, and vendors may contact you by telephone about urgent campaigns.

Email from MoveOn.org Political Action

MoveOn will send you updates on this and other important campaigns by email. If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from our email list, you may do so by completing this form.
