People’s Summit 2022 | Los Angeles, CA
June 8, 9, 10
In the tradition of each Summit of the Americas since the 2005 Mar Del Plata Summit, we, unionists, activists, grassroots organizations and progressive people of Los Angeles and of the Americas are calling for a People’s Summit on June 8th, 9th and 10th at counter the 9th Summit of the Americas– slated to be held in Los Angeles, CA.
The Biden Administration, alongside Los Angeles Mayor Garcetti and California Governor Gavin Newson will use the 9th Summit of the Americas to showcase Los Angeles as the example of “economic prosperity, security, human rights, and dignity.”
Working people across the city of Los Angeles know that our government officials have failed to deal with the deep inequities in our communities – issues that will be undoubtedly underplayed or outright ignored by leaders in this country in the 9th Summit of the Americas.
Join our movement and join our call for a People’s Summit to discuss the real crises facing our communities within the region. We will be hosting three days of workshops, panels, cultural performances and mobilizations, concurrent with the Summit of the Americas to create a space and opportunity to discuss these dire needs of our region.
