SiX’s 5th annual conference will be December 3-4, 2018. Over the last four years, more than 1,000 legislators have participated from all 50 states.
The conference is a unique opportunity for legislators from across the country who share progressive values to come together and build a stronger national progressive community.
Legislators have the opportunity to network, learn from national policy experts and organizational leaders, strategize, and share policy ideas and best practices with their colleagues in other states. At SiX, investing in the professional growth of a new generation of progressive leaders is at the core of our mission.
Over this two-day conference, participants will be able to participate in:
Training for Newly Elected Legislators
National and State Polling and Messaging Briefings
Policy Presentationsfrom National Progressive Leaders, Policy Experts, and Legislators: In prior years, panels included presentations on economic and workplace policies, education, health care, environmental, democracy, and civil rights issues, reproductive rights, and more.
Trainings and Skill-Building Seminars on Effective Governance
Special Programming for SiX’s Reproductive Freedom Leadership Council(RFLC): The RFLC is a cohort of over 272 state legislators from 43 states dedicated to leading on reproductive rights, health, and justice.
Past keynote speakers have included Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, and many more.
The 2018 SiX Legislator Conference will come at an especially crucial time. The 2019 legislative session could offer major opportunities to enact a progressive agenda at scale across dozens of states with new progressive majorities for the first time in a decade. Our 5th annual convening will be an essential forum to help legislators prepare for this new era.
