The YearlyKos Board of Directors announced today that Democratic Senator Harry Reid will speak at the 2006 YearlyKos bloggers convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.But before you click on the press release, it's worth repeating our mission statement so you can see why his presence is so significant...
YearlyKos is a nonprofit corporation that seeks to unite the netroots with the organizations and resources striving to build progressive infrastructure and advance the progressive values of preserving and promoting the environment, equal rights, separation of church and state, good governance, ethics, enlightened international relations, media reform, voters' rights, and election reform.
Simply put, we want to foster collaboration between those who blog and read blogs and the organizations and resources which will benefit from reaching this large and passionate audience. Through this collaboration, we will build an annual convention.
Sen. Reid doesn't just have his finger on the pulse of American politics ... in many ways he is the pulse of American politics. We are humbled by his acceptance, and we hope you'll be as excited as we are to have him address our community in person.
This is your convention. Who else would you like to see/hear during it? Let us know!
