At PowerShift Atlantic, leaders from across social justice movements will come together to share ideas, experiences and plans for a just and sustainable future. We're calling on the ideas, creativity and leadership of people from across movements. We're excited to give new facilitators and speakers a chance to try their hand at leading workshops and participating in panel discussions.

PowerShift's sessions will be engaging, creative, fun, and empower participants to walk away with new skills, strategies and tools to make change.

Submissions for PowerShift Atlantic programming are no longer being accepted. Thanks to everyone who submitted ideas!

There will be space at PowerShift Atlantic for participant driven session - like discussions about particular issues, campaigns, or projects. More information coming soon!

If you would like a table at PowerShift to share information and materials about your organization or group, please sign up here and we'll set you up with a table during the day-time sessions at PowerShift Atlantic.
