There’s one progressive conference that we all have to go to this year: Netroots Nation.
Netroots Nation is a four-day conference for progressive activists, with a focus on the internet side of things. Tons of speakss, workshops, etc. So many cool people to meet. Such good parties at night.
It cost me about 500 dollars to go last year and it was so worth it.
This year we can all get in for fifty.
That’s right. Fifty dollars for a student registration. And if we register as a group, we get additional discounts.
August 13-16, in Pittsburgh. You in? Leave a comment or email me at
Netroots Nation 2009
The fourth annual gathering of the Netroots (formerly known as the YearlyKos Convention) will be held August 13-16 at the David L. Lawrence convention center in Pittsburgh, PA. Netroots Nation 2009 will include panels led by national and international experts; identity, issue and regional caucuses; prominent political, issue and policy-oriented speakers; a progressive film screening series; and the most concentrated gathering of progressive bloggers to date.
Time magazine calls 2008 “the year of the youth vote.” At Netroots Nation, we hope to make every year about successful youth organizing.
Because we aim to continually bring new voices into the progressive movement, for the first time ever, we are offering a special student rate for those enrolled at least half-time at a high school, community college, trade school or university.
For just $50, you can participate in four days of insightful panels, training sessions and networking opportunities at the grassroots event of the year–the annual Netroots Nation convention to be held in Pittsburgh August 13–16.
