The People’s Convergence is being pulled together by Draft Bernie for a People’s Party, the Progressive Independent Party, and Socialist Alternative.

The groups will discuss two central questions;

What will it take to defeat the right wing and build a powerful left alternative?

Should progressives continue the fight to reform the Democratic Party or should we launch a people’s party independent of corporate money and influence?

In fact, the groups have already decided on question two.

Or as Draft Bernie organizer Nick Brana makes clear –  “the Democratic Party is structurally incapable of becoming a people’s party.”
