The Pennsylvania Progressive Summit is pleased to announce that our 2013 keynote speaker is David Cobb.
David Cobb is the provocative and dynamic national spokesperson for Move to Amend (MTA), a coalition of more than 250,000 people and organizations working together for social and economic justice, ending corporate rule, and building a vibrant democracy that is genuinely accountable to the people, not corporate interests. MTA calls for an amendment to the US Constitution to unequivocally state that inalienable rights belong to human beings only, and that money is not a form of protected free speech under the First Amendment and can be regulated in political campaigns.
Prior keynote speakers have included the Rev. Jesse Jackson, William McNary and Wiscosin Senator Jon Erpenbach.
The 2013 Pennsylvania Progressive Summit is going to be the most important event for progressive leaders and activists this year. This year, it will be in Harrisburg on March 2. It's an incredible opportunity to learn from the best and brightest progressive leaders, network with activists from around the state and have a chance to reenergize for the battles ahead.
