PSN's annual, invite-only Legislative Leadership Retreat provides an opportunity for leading progressive legislators from across the nation to learn from experts, come together as a community, and support one another in the work of crafting and realizing a vision of a more just and equitable society. Legislators have the opportunity to share best practices, coordinate strategy, and plan for a successful upcoming year. We hold in-depth issue strategy sessions, provide messaging and other trainings, and help lawmakers engage in state-based planning to ensure that progressives can turn effectively advance a powerful and compelling progressive agenda that is pro-worker, pro-middle class, and pro-immigrant in all 50 states.
2013's Legislative Leadership Retreat will take place Thursday, October 24th to Saturday, October 26th in Washington, D.C. This year's Retreat will focus on building national and state legislative leadership teams designed to support and equip progressive leaders in their fight for a more just and equitable democracy. It will also include skills and messaging trainings, dynamic discussions highlighting cutting edge policy initiatives, and strategic sessions on issues that promise to play a prominent role in state and national political debates in the coming year.
