Last year, I had the opportunity to attend Netroots Nation in San Jose, which was made possible through the Democracy for America Netroots Nation Scholarship program. This year, Netroots Nation heads to Detroit July 17-20 and has over 40 trainings scheduled for the event.

Netroots Nation is the largest progressive conference in the country, and is an unrivaled springboard to amplifying progressive voices and educating attendees on how to be more effective in using technology to influence the public debate. This is done through a variety of events, panels, and workshops, which also provide a great opportunity for connecting with others focusing on similar issues.
