For Netroots Nation 2016, we’re choosing to go to St. Louis, MO. America is changing and Netroots Nation is committed to supporting those creating positive change in communities across the nation.
In 2015 we went to Phoenix, where we learned that border militarization, deportation that destroys families, racial criminalization that blights futures and persistent economic inequality impacts all Americans. We are all allies in understanding that the struggles of one community are shared with those working for progressive values everywhere. We’ve seen that electric energy bubble over into mainstream consciousness in places like Ferguson and Baltimore thanks to the work of the brave organizers behind the Black Lives Matter movement and the dozens of organizations that have been fighting for justice in these communities for decades.
We’re going to one of the epicenters of this struggle so we can get to know these activists and organizers, learn more about the issues they’re working on and amplify them. With you joining hand-in-hand with us, we can help make vital connections to strengthen the progressive movement for justice and equality around our country.
We’re going to carry with us from Phoenix both what we’ve learned and the friendships and we’ve made. We’ll build bridges in St. Louis as we continue to be the largest platform by and for the progressive movement.
We hope to see you in St. Louis.
Connector of awesome progressive activists. Coming to Atlanta, GA August 10-13, 2017.
