From December 4-6, 2016, SiX hosted its national legislator conference in Washington, D.C. – bringing together more than 400 state lawmakers from across the nation. The conference was the first major gathering of state legislators, members of Congress, and progressive movement leaders since the 2016 election. Attendees discussed how to advance a positive vision of progressive governance and the vital role that states can play in contrast to what President-elect Trump and a conservative-controlled Congress will attempt to put forward from D.C.
Featured keynote speakers included U.S. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker, former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, Reverend Dr. William J. Barber II, and Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha.
Following the conference, SiX released a special edition of Six from SiX featuring key highlights throughout the event – including video and audio clips of keynote remarks, SiX’s press conference on the final day of the event, photos, and top media coverage. You can check it out here.
