We strongly encourage attendance for the entire weekend as ALL OF THE TOPICS are deeply interrelated and to get a real understanding of the ecology and create an informed vision for change, it helps to see how all the pieces fit together.

While all Congress events are free and open to the public (CATCH is ticketed separately) please consider getting a weekend pass for $10 to support the printing of the final document to be published and released in January. Weekend passes are available here.
