This September, we hope you’ll join us for a two-day planning and grassroots organizing summit in Buckhannon, WV. People all across our state are rising up to fight for equality for themselves, their families, and their neighbors – not for big donors on Wall Street. In West Virginia, we believe in freedom for all people regardless of gender, race, class, orientation, disability, or status.
During our two day event, you will have the opportunity to join in on trainings, workshops, projects, networking opportunities, roundtable discussions, and more – if you are standing up for yourself, your family, and/or your community, this summit is for you! Click here to register.

*This weekend coincides with a Jewish holiday. We apologize deeply for this conflict. Every weekend we considered would have caused a major conflict with one of our partners. We are committed to making what happens at the Summit welcoming to all. In that spirit, many of the workshops will be livestreamed and available on-line after the event. All of our workshop presenters are also committed to making themselves available one-on-one with anyone who is unable to attend the event but is curious to learn more. If you are unable to attend the event, but would like more information about one or more of the particular sessions, contact Stephen@ourfuturewv.org
