Million Hoodies National Membership Congress 2018 Registration

From Thursday, August 2 to Sunday, August 5, 2018, we look forward to gathering 100 Million Hoodies members together at the historic Tuskegee University in Tuskegee, Alabama. The National Membership Congress is where Million Hoodies members across the country gather to build deeper relationships, set direction about how to move the organization forward, exchange best practices, and engage in collective decision-making and experiences that represent the nature of our growing national community.

Million Hoodies Congress is an opportunity to be inspired, foster new connections within our organization, reunite with friends, and engage in powerful conversations and strategic action to take our collective organizing to the next level in 2018. Congress is one of the most dynamic weekends for Million Hoodies members because of the collective experience to have fun, organize, and support one another.

This year, Million Hoodies National Congress is aimed at crafting network-wide alignment on our multi-year vision for the emerging sanctuary movement and to equip our members with the tools, trainings, and strategies for building campus and community power.

In a moment where many people are experiencing despair, isolation and fear, it’s up to us to shift the power from harmful institutions to our communities! The time to be in community is now. We can't afford to stay on the sidelines or silent as our people continue to be deported, killed by police, suffer through injustice and negligence by the government.

We are looking for commitment. By choosing to join the Million Hoodies family, you are choosing to take a stand for yourself and your community. You are choosing to deny the criminalization, marginalization, and violence that our families are subject to every day. You are choosing to join in a proud tradition of Black and Brown youth organizing and leadership across the nation.

Registered participants will receive a logistics memo that will share comprehensive details to prepare for the convening. By registering, Million Hoodies will provide you with food, lodging, materials, and a cool t-shirt for attending the national gathering.
