March 31 – April 1, 2017

On January 23, 2017, the idea for Come Together was born, and it’s happening – and it’s happening fast.  As a result, this page will be continually updated with details.  Please check back but, trust us, register now!

Make your hotel reservations today.  Call 800.225.5558.  $109 rate guarantee extended through March 7, 2017.

Come Together is being co-sponsored by the Wisconsin Chapters of the American Constitution Society.

We have so much work to do, and the to-do list grows each and every day.  Come Together will be educational and inspirational, practical, a means to connect – and it will be fun.  To paraphrase Emma Goldman, we’re going to dance and be an effective part of the resistance (or at least watch other people dance)!
