Rock The Congress is an unconnected (e.g. Super) PAC, whose mission is to maximize collaboration among progressive groups to win elections. We draw upon each group’s strengths to plan and conduct events that: build alignment and solidarity among progressive organizations, foster inter-organizational coordination and communication, and build capacity — training trainers, spreading the word about new tools and methodologies.
Susan Morgan, Leader, Indivisible Marin:
“I learned so much in my breakout sessions and was inspired by all the speakers in the gym. I also met many people I had never met before or who I knew only via email and/or the internet.”
Rob Lanphier, Indivisible San Francisco:
“Rock the Congress North Bay was an educational and energizing experience. The speakers were inspiring, with really important things to say, and the concentration of so many dedicated activists made the hallway conversations a critical part of the program.”
Pat Mundy, Co-Founder, Rock the Congress:
“When we first came up with the idea of gathering 300 progressive resistance movement leaders from around the Bay Area for a coalition-building conference, we had no idea if it could be pulled off. In the end, we had a full house, a great set of presenters and facilitators, several fantastic keynote speakers including Congressman Jared Huffman, and veteran organizers Donnie Fowler and Becky Bond! The event was successful beyond our wildest dreams, as shown by the resulting broad Northern California inter-organizational coalition (NorCalBlueWave Alliance) of critical stakeholders including Indivisible, Swing Left, Sister District Project, and so many more.”
