Thank you for your interest in our workshops!
Trust and confidence in the American political process is now at or near an all-time low.
Democracies fail when they lose the trustand confidence of the people.
Most Americans don’t know what to do about it
We are ThePeoplesConvention.org. We are a neutral, nonpartisan 501c3 tax exempt organization and we conduct neutral, nonpartisan workshops on strengthening the democratic process.
We do this by
BRINGING AMERICANS TOGETHER—fairly, honestly and respectfully—from across the political spectrum
THEY AGREE on what they say would strengthen our political process
THEY DRAFT proposals likely to be approved as legislation or constitutional amendment
THEY CREATE effective, bipartisan teams and plans to implement proposals in their state
WE POST their workshop online and coordinate their work with that in other states
The workshops are led by Blair Henry, Executive Director of ThePeoplesConvention.org, and a former Seattle corporate and prosecuting attorney, mediator, graduate school professor, and delegate to both Republican and Democratic state conventions.
We will be honored to conduct a workshop in your community. It’s a terrific opportunity to bring your community together for a constructive, mutually valuable, conversation. If you are interested in this, please let us know and we’ll schedule a call.
Workshop Reviews by Participants with Political Leanings to the Left, Middle, Right and Undisclosed
(1) Those self-described as typically leaning LEFT politically
Spread branches of The People’s Convention to other states . .
Jayana Clerk PhD
Great job! Very professionally done. The workshop was inclusive and respectful of all involved . . The workshop was an important civics 101 lesson and a reminder that each of us must be engaged in the political process. The Peoples Convention is an easy manner to become and stay engaged. It puts “We, the People” back in charge.
Hilary Lyman,B.S. Environmental Education, Environmental Planner
A wealth of knowledge that allowed a flow of great actions and ideas from a diverse audience. Well done!
Tom Parsons PhD
(2) Those self-described as typically leaning MIDDLE politically
An informative and fun afternoon – very thought provoking. This was really fun and I didn’t expect that at all.
Ida de Blanc,Business Owner & Citizen Volunteer
Blair is not some “wild-eyed” nut case who wants to hijack the federal government. He has worked “within the system” in his profession and like so many of us has been distressed at the level of dysfunction that currently exists. Instead of merely complaining about the mess, he is looking for a constructive path toward reform. . . Blair has revitalized our hope that there may be other constructive ways to change the system. . . we encourage you to visit ThePeoplesConvention.org website . . .and to spread the word to other frustrated Americans that all is not lost. Government of the people, by the people, and for the people may still be possible.
Jim and Claudia Burtelo
This workshop was inspiring. enjoyable, thought-provoking experience – I’m glad I came! Keep up this good work!
Paul Friedman PhD
Informed citizens make great decisions! Understanding Art. V of the U.S. Constitution and the Peoples/States Constitutional Convention is a must about “being informed”.
Reg Urgena MD

An interesting and informative presentation.

Great workshop informative, educational, empowering. Let’s take back America!
Dwight Kadar Committeemen, Precinct 109
This experience should be in place in every city in the United States.
I was very impressed with the workshop I attended . . it impressed me, not only with the little-known fact that we, the people, have the opportunity to legally change the constitution which I had never known, but to watch how Blair Henry is able to bring his audience into agreement with changes to the law regardless of their political persuasion. It is a little-known safeguard built in to our political system, and I have since watched other presentations where the participants experienced the same miracle that I first saw . . . I would encourage anyone who would like to see some changes made to our political process to attend and listen to the choices available to us, as aptly taught by Blair Henry
(4) Those preferring not to provide their typical political inclination

Very interesting process – looking forward to actions to come.
Ted Dwyer CFP
The workshop was well structured. The facilitator kept the attendees on task to accomplish the goals of each exercise.
Mary Margaret Fitch
This was a valuable seminar. The ideas generated by both the leader and the participants led to a better understanding of the process for a People’s Convention. No matter the vehicle, the changes needed by our country are critical and any process that accomplishes this is good.
Excellent presentation and control of venue. . .. Excellent control of time included in the presentation.
Excellent workshop. It made what first sounded impossible something that could be done.
Non-threatening and easy to participate tonight. Relief to consider positive suggestions rather than focus on current politics.
. . . You have managed to corral the vocal and facilitate a focus on the common interests.
Great source of info related to “Power of People” process. Very good practice and great motivator to change direction of our country.
Robin Kelley,Sedona Tea Party
This was interesting to see so much diversity at start of the meeting to compatibility in this group. Amazing how professional Blair handled questions and issues and direction and glad I came.
Great job! Thank you!
