With a new year comes a fresh opportunity to create a new wave of progressive change.
In the coming year, activists around the country will continue to raise their voices for better wages, improved access to healthcare and education, and equal opportunity for every person in this country. You’ll keep fighting for real comprehensive immigration reform, racial justice and LGBT equality in every state, and more thorough protection of our planet and its resources. And you’ll work to elect progressives who will do the same.
In Michigan—our host state for NN14—progressives will continue to push back against regressive legislation on women’s health and attacks on labor and collective bargaining while others will lend their support to win an open Senate seat or to unseat Gov. Rick Snyder.
With Netroots Nation 2014 coming just months before the midterms, our goal is to highlight the work you are doing around the country, from electoral campaigns to issue work in your home state.
What issues are most important to you and your community? To which campaigns will you lend your money, your time, your resources? Whether it’s rebuilding the middle class or winning back your state’s legislature, we want to know so we can build the agenda for Netroots Nation 2014 around what’s most important to you.
Each year, we ask for your help in developing and organizing the sessions you’ll attend at Netroots Nation. Your submissions will help us create an inclusive agenda for our 2014 conference while also helping shape the national dialog for progressives in the coming months.
It’s easy to submit an idea. Click here for the guidelines and submission form.
When you’re brainstorming ideas, here are a few things to remember:
While we always welcome ideas that run the gamut of progressive issues, each session should include new perspectives, voices and ideas.
By submitting a proposal, you are taking responsibility as the organizer of the session. We’ll help you along the way, but ultimately it’s your baby. Are you ready to submit?
The deadline for submissions is February 19, 2014.
