While we don’t know what will happen on Election Day or in the days that follow, we do know this election will impact history for generations to come.

With so many critical issues at stake in this historic year and for decades to come—a pandemic, racial justice, climate change, economic inequality, healthcare, mass incarceration, gun control, immigrant rights, gender equality, war and peace—it is more important than ever to come together to unpack, analyze, and debate. Together, we will rebuild and reimagine a more just and progressive America.

Your ticket will unlock four days of critical conversations, debates, interviews, networking with other festival attendees, on-demand video of all festival sessions and much more—as well as providing essential support for The Nation’s journalism. Don’t miss the very first Nation Festival!
