Netroots Nation is coming to Pittsburgh August 13-16, 2009. Here's the call for proposals.
In the next 12 months, we'll be working together more than ever to push progressive policy into legislation. And there's no better place to discuss our priorities and plan how to make them a reality than at Netroots Nation, the grassroots event of the year.
In order to create the most well-rounded agenda possible, we need your input. Will you help us develop and organize the sessions that you’ll attend at Netroots Nation in Pittsburgh—and help shape the dialog for progressives in 2009?
It's easy to get involved. http://netrootsnation.org/proposals … The deadline for submission is March 31.
We want to see proposals on key issues like the economy, health care and energy policy. And we also want to include sessions about successful offline and online organizing tactics.
But you are not limited to these topics. We want this year's agenda to reflect your interests. And your interests are best expressed by your proposal.
When you're brainstorming, here are a few things to think about:
* How does my idea help the broader progressive movement?
* How will it empower activists to take what they've learned and use it for the greater good?
* Do my proposed panelists represent diversity—of ethnicity, gender, geography, age and viewpoint?
