BISC Logo

This year, we traded in Vegas for Virtual.

BISC’s signature, must-attend, yearly event featured state-based advocates, ballot measure campaign experts, movement leaders, and funding partners – all focused on how ballot measures can be a tool for liberation.

Our theme this year focused on “Resilience + Brilliance”, to tell the story of BISC’s impact in 2020 and how we can continue to come together and co-create the future, shift culture, build capacity, and center racial equity.
