Sunday, Aug. 27

The North by Northwest Progressive Summit is returning to Erie after an extended absence with a new location and new name. This year’s summit, hosted by Keystone Progress, promises to be bigger and better than ever. Pennsylvania’s best and brightest progressive leaders will head a series of panel discussions about how we might elevate and improve our region. The combination of speakers, panels, and training sessions aim to educate and empower other progressive leaders and thinkers. The summit is also an opportunity to develop relationships with like-minded people who want to make the community a more forward-thinking and welcoming place. Speakers include Erie County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper, Associate Justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court David Wecht, and Admiral and former senatorial candidate Joe Sestak. The summit is pulling no punches, scheduling presentations on gun violence, racism, court systems, talk radio, and many more educational discussions. — Austin Mitchell
