Help Co-Create Upswell 2021

May 4, 2021

What do you know about racial justice or the health of our nation?

It’s not a rhetorical question. Upswell runs on the knowledge, experience, expertise, innovation, and wisdom of its community members – including you.

Today, we’re asking you to bring your best to the table.

Through June 1, we’re inviting you and changemakers from across the country to submit proposals for a spot on the Upswell 2021 virtual summit schedule this fall (happening October 20-22).

For what, exactly? Well, that’s up to you.

We’re searching for surprising innovation and bold strategies. We’re looking for breakthrough moments that can catalyze ideas into action and build deeper relationships. We’re asking for you to test the limits of your imagination about what can happen when your vision meets the ambition of thousands of energized changemakers.

Here’s the important part: our two themes of racial justice and societal health are extraordinarily complex. So, whether they happen to be your or your collaborators’ specific areas of expertise isn’t the point.

Think expansively. Whatever your mission, we’re confident that you can apply your unique perspective to one (or both) of the themes.  

Our nation is on the precipice of incredible opportunity.

What’s possible? Let’s find out together.
