a camp for the newly activated
90 min from NYC
Across America, a surge of youthful activism has exploded, ignited by social movements, the political moment, and an expanded awareness of systems of oppression damaging our society.
But what if this surge is more than a "Resistance"? What if it's an awakening to a new vision, fueled by a new generation, for how political and civic engagement can lead us to more authentic lives and stronger social connections?
At Deep State, we believe in this awakening and are committed to fostering it, in ourselves and in each other.
For three days in October, we -- the "newly activated" next generation -- will come together at a camp in upstate New York to challenge ourselves on what it means to be engaged citizens. Through workshops, talks, and relationship-building activities, we'll push ourselves to go deeper into our ideas and positions, while developing skills to fight the current battles, and connections to sustain us.
And we'll have fun doing it. With campfires, djs, capture the flag, our goal is to create a political space that's also soulfully social -- all in a beautiful environment easily accessible from NYC.
Based on the Action Item Fair, a daylong "intro to progressive activism," Deep State aims to create an experience that lets you push yourself to a new level of awareness and action while leaving you refreshed, connected, and inspired for the work to come.
