Take Action at Democratic and Republican Conventions

Beyond Extreme Energy encourages our members and supporters to take action at the Republican National Convention, from July 18-21 in Cleveland, and the Democratic National Convention, from July 25-28 in Philadelphia. Although BXE’s main focus is activities July 22-24, in the days before the Democratic convention, we support nonviolent protest and direct action at both.
