Today is the LAST day to get the Early Bird Rate for the Progressive Summit!

Join us in Harrisburg this January for the largest and most exciting gathering of progressives in Pennsylvania. The netroots and grassroots, activists and leaders will join together in our effort to create a permanent progressive majority in Pennsylvania.


The Pennsylvania Progressive Summit will be held on January 29-30 at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey.

Here's a sampling of the incredible workshops and roundtables we'll have:

   * Getting Free Media Around Your Issues
   * Mobilizing Through New Media: Building a New Media Program From the Ground Up
   * Why Growing a Green Manufacturing Economy is Critical to Progressives
   * Petitioning 101: How to Keep Your Candidate on the Ballot
   * Using Government's Power of the Purse to Create Good Jobs
   * Medical Marijuana: Mainstream Policies for the 2010's

We'll also have:

Great opportunities for networking with progressives from across PA and elsewhere, including netroots and grassroots activists, stakeholders, decision makers, policy makers, and providers;

A gubernatorial debate featuring Chris Doherty, Joe Hoeffel, Tom Knox, Dan Onorato and Jack Wagner;

Inspirational speakers, including Leo Gerard (International President of the United Steelworkers) and Wendell Potter (former health insurance exec turned whistleblower);

...and more to be announced in the coming weeks.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
