Netroots Nation 2015 coming to Phoenix
Netroots Nation is an annual gathering of progressive activists with an online bent. They gather to share ideas, knowledge, and inspiration with each other.
There are special guests, discussion panels, film screenings, trainings, and more.
Just in time to help get ready for the 2016 election cycle, the 10th annual meeting will be held in Phoenix from July 16th to 19th.
The exact schedule of the panels and trainings has yet to be determined, but the subjects will cover all sort of subject areas related to organizing, fund raising, and enhancing online campaign efforts. The emphasis (but not the sole focus) this year will be on immigration-related issues (hey, it *is* being held in Arizona. Didja think the main focus would be on building an aerodynamically perfect snowball? :) ).
People can register here.
The registration fee for a regular ("activist") admission is currently $325 plus a $9.12 service fee, but if that is too pricey for some (and let's face it, we're grassroots brothers and sisters, not Koch or Walton brothers and sisters; find a way to attend. If you can afford to, donate to NN to help defray the cost for others), scholarships are available. Apply for one here.
Some scholarships have already been awarded. The list of recipients is here.
Note: Steve Muratore, friend, friend of the blog, and fellow blogger (Arizona Eagletarian) is in the running for a scholarship to this year's Netroots Nation, courtesy Democracy for America. Vote for him here, please.
