National Student Power Summit

About USSA’s National Student Power Summit

Starting this year, USSA’s National Grassroots Legislative Convention (LegCon) will be known as the National Student Power Summit!

After witnessing a powerful resurgence in student organizing across the nation this year, we are evolving to respond to new challenges and opportunities in the student movement. We are reimagining our spring convention as part of an ongoing effort to refocus our core values, governance structure, and operations to better serve the student movement.

At the National Student Power Summit, students from across the country will come together to attend workshops, develop grassroots organizing skills, lobby federal elected representatives, participate in direct action in historic downtown Washington, DC, and build relationships. We will also unveil our new education justice framework and a revamped vision for our organization!

Convention Details

The National Student Power Summit will take place March 18-21, 2016 at the Gallaudet University Kellogg Conference Hotel. Students will gather for programming Friday evening March 18 through Sunday, March 20. On Monday, March 21 students will participate in a National Student Lobby and Action Day.
