Renew America

New America's 2017 Annual Conference

About the Event

The New America Annual Conference is a day-long conference bringing together New America’s network of fellows, thinkers, writers, researchers, technologists, and community activists who believe deeply in the possibility of American renewal.

We’re incubating and cultivating big ideas and talents from our program directors to our fellows who are questioning, challenging, and solving some of tomorrow’s biggest problems. From media literacy to racial justice to the future of work we’re addressing major social, economic, and political challenges in an era of profound, exhilarating, but often threatening change.
