At When We All Vote’s inaugural Culture of Democracy Summit, we’ll have a national conversation on how we can all work together every year to expand our collective mission to protect democracy, fight voter suppression, and ensure every American has equal access to the ballot box ahead of the 2022 midterm elections and beyond.
During these four days, we’ll bring together artists, athletes, academics, musical guests, grassroots organizers, civic leaders, corporate leaders, and more to discuss the role different industries play in strengthening our democracy through voter registration, education, mobilization, and culture change.
For the safety of all guests, we are requiring that all Summit attendees be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Additionally, all Summit events will follow local and CDC health and safety protocols.
The Culture of Democracy Summit is a nonpartisan gathering. The purpose of the Summit is to raise awareness of the issues facing our democracy and to increase civic engagement.
