Join the Task Force at Netroots Nation 2012

Next week, one of the most powerful political events of the year will take place in Providence, Rhode Island: the seventh annual Netroots Nation conference. Join bloggers, online organizers, social justice advocates, union workers, organizational leaders, college organizers and other fierce activists for four days of thought-provoking panels, practical trainings and fun networking opportunities.

We hope you’ll join us for a discussion on how to advocate for progress through federal agencies using the existing framework of federal law. Our panel “Winning Without a Vote: Working with Federal Agencies to Advance a Progressive Agenda” will share success stories related to the LGBT movement, but the tools for change can be used by anyone willing to roll up their sleeves and wade into the world of federal regulation. The panel features Brad Jacklin, Task Force Project Director, Kellan Baker, Health Policy Analyst at the Center for American Progress, Emily Hecht-McGowan, Director of Public Policy for Family Equality Council, Gautam Raghavan, White House liaison to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community, and Maya Rupert, Federal Policy Director at the National Center for Lesbian Rights.

Our board member and the Executive Director of Choice USA will be participating in the panel: “Liberate Your Ass: Why Sexual Freedom is Key to Fighting the Right.” Thursday, June 7, 3:00 pm to 4:15 pm in Ballroom D.

We hope you’ll join us to kick-off Netroots at our Task Force Cocktail Party on Wednesday, June 6 from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm at the Providence Biltmore Hotel. Click here to rsvp on the Facebook event page.
