Populism is on the rise across the political spectrum, yet the extreme right often leverages it best, and with disturbing results. This year, elements of our program will tackle the issue of populism to gain greater understanding of how it can be tapped to build a progressive groundswell, and when it is a force we must resist.

Join us for our best Progress Summit yet! Over two and a half days of incredible programming, 1200 participants from across Canada will gather to share bold progressive ideas that inspire hope, and the best organizing tactics, policy frames, and communication tools to help progressives win.
