The Concept:
In late July several organizations jointly organized the original Emergency Truth Convergence, held in Washington, DC ( We brought together speakers and leaders to discuss the current state of America, to rally at Lafayette Park across from the White House, to form new alliances, and to brainstorm strategies.

Kansas City Event Framework: Emergency Truth Convergence–Midwest is an outgrowth of the July DC Emergency Truth Convergence. We intend to focus more specifically and urgently on the ways these issues impact our individual lives.
