Denise was really excited this morning to announce the first-ever Netroots Minnesota, a regional conference of the very successful Netroots Nation (formerly YearlyKos). Netroots Minnesota will include panels, workshops, caucuses, keynote speakers, and other creative sessions designed to educate, stimulate, and inspire the nation’s next generation of progressive leaders.
Check out the email announcement below:
You know you’re not alone in wanting to build progressive power in the state.
Over the next 12 months, we will be working hard to advocate for progressive policies. But in order to be effective, we’re going to need to get the progressive grassroots and Netroots together to network and organize.
Join us, along with progressives from all over Minnesota, in St. Paul on November 20th and 21st for the first ever Netroots Minnesota conference.
We’ll have captivating panels led by national and state experts, practical training sessions and workshops, and a gubernatorial candidate forum. This conference is the premier kickoff to the critical conversations progressives will be having as we approach 2010.
Netroots Minnesota is modeled after the Netroots Nation conference (formerly known as the YearlyKos Convention). The Netroots have played a critical role in helping shape a progressive agenda over the last several years.
We hope to build upon that same success in Minnesota, and with the hotly contested 2010 gubernatorial race on the horizon, now is the time to start this important conversation. Through this conference we hope to strengthen our community, inspire action and serve as an incubator for ideas that challenge the status quo and ultimately affect change in the public sphere.
Don’t be left out! Space is limited, so visit NetrootsMinnesota.org and reserve your spot today.
Thanks for all you do,
Alliance for A Better Minnesota
