Taking Back Your State: How to Respond to Restrictive State Immigration Legislation
Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 1:30 PM CDT • L100 AB
Seth Hoy, A. Elena Lacayo, Suman Raghunathan, Jill V. Garvey

After passage of Arizona's controversial anti-immigrant law (SB 1070), state legislatures began introducing copycat legislation in addition to other restrictive immigration measures. While most of those initiatives failed, restrictionist lawmakers and anti-immigrant groups have and will continue to push their enforcement-only agenda in state legislatures. Meanwhile, lawmakers seeking real solutions to our immigration problems have begun pursuing progressive immigration policies--many of which seek to boost economic and job growth on the state level. Join immigration policy experts as they discuss progressive legislative alternatives, the ramifications of pursuing anti-immigrant legislation, the restrictionists behind the laws and the available resources and strategies to help advocates and activists take back their states.

Panelists represent a diverse range of constituents and will offer insight into the challenges of engaging urban, rural and diverse populations.

The Corporate Court: Your Rights vs. Corporate Interests
Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 10:30 AM CDT • L100 H
Nan Aron, Dahlia Lithwick, Eva Paterson, Carl Pope, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse

Panel participants will address the growing influence of corporations within the American judicial system, particularly in the Supreme Court. Under Chief Justice John Roberts, an activist conservative majority on the Court has aggressively weakened or eliminated consumer protections and workers’ rights, while restricting the ability of everyday Americans to use the courts to find justice. In recent cases ranging from Citizens United vs. FEC to Exxon vs. Baker, and from this term’s AT&T Mobility vs. Concepcion and Wal-Mart vs. Dukes, the transparently pro-business Roberts Court has demonstrated a repeated willingness to elevate corporate power at the expense of the individual. In order to enable and motivate our activists to fight back, progressive organizations and bloggers must understand the battleground, the tools at our disposal and the stakes. With several important Supreme Court decisions expected this summer, and with conservatives continuing their long-planned efforts to capture the judicial system, the panel will examine what’s at stake for the American people and our democracy, as well as the need for progressives to pay significantly increased attention to the courts and the selection of judges.

Green Organizing in Red States: The Fight Against Big Oil's Next Pipeline
Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 10:30 AM CDT • L100 AB
Kate Sheppard, Marty Cobenais, David Daniel, Jane Fleming Kleeb, Nick Berning

In recent Congressional fights over environmental protections, polluters' influence has often overpowered that of progressives' often narrow and under-energized coalitions. One environmental campaign that has broken this mold is the fight to stop a pipeline that, if approved by the Obama administration, would carry the dirtiest oil on Earth from Canada's tar sands across six U.S. states to refineries in Texas. Ranchers in Nebraska, landowners in Texas, Native Americans and other unexpected allies have mobilized to take the lead in organizing resistance to the project, called the Keystone XL. These unconventional partnerships have changed the political calculus of the pipeline decision, turning a sure bet for Big Oil into a controversial environmental decision for the Obama administration. This panel will explore what has brought and kept these groups together, as well as opportunities for similar types of unconventional alliances to work in other environmental campaigns.

The Attack on America’s Middle Class, and the Plan to Fight Back
Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 9:00 AM CDT • General Session Hall A
Sen. Al Franken, Lee Saunders, Mary Bell, Mary Kay Henry, Joseph Hansen, Bob Kuttner, Ari Melber

We’re witnessing the fruition of a decades-long plan by conservatives to undercut the progressive movement by destroying its foundation: labor unions. After decades of successfully diminishing the power of private sector unions, the right wing is now coming after public employee unions. From Wisconsin to Ohio, Republicans are taking aim at public sector unions as a means to their political ends. As they attempt to destroy the bedrock of progressive infrastructure, the middle class gets weakened and income disparity continues to grow. After years of playing defense, progressives are ready to take the fight to the other side. Americans of all walks are angry, loud and organized to retain collective bargaining as the bedrock of the middle class and to expand the power of working people. Why are public sector workers bearing the brunt of this attack, and what is next? What will become of the middle class if we are not able to repel conservatives bent on destroying labor unions? How can we continue to fight for workers even as more states try to strip away our right to collectively bargain? And how can progressive activists stand up for and with the middle class against corporations who are attempting to buy our government? Speakers: Sen. Al Franken, AFSCME Secretary-Treasurer Lee Saunders, Wisconsin Education Association Council President Mary Bell, SEIU President Mary Kay Henry, UFCW President Joseph Hansen and economist Bob Kuttner. Moderated by Ari Melber of The Nation.

7:43 AM PT (Laura Clawson): I kept trying to provide some pieces of Sen. Al Franken's speech, which argued that progressives need to make the case that, far from being conservative, the Republican agenda would bring truly radical change to our society. But it called for more than quick sound-bite transcriptions, so we'll see if the full text is available at some point.

Challenging Mainstream Media Narratives on Right-wing Extremism
Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 1:30 PM CDT • L100 H
Amanda Marcotte, David Neiwert, Sarah Posner, Adele Stan, Jesse Taylor, David Holthouse

Domestic terrorism and right-wing extremism are on the rise again, but the mainstream media is too fearful of a conservative backlash to discuss it honestly. How can progressive activists hold them accountable? We'll break down different kinds of right-wing violence and extremism and talk about strategies to keep the public educated on the real facts.

The Plan to Advance Marriage Equality, Inside and Outside of the 112th Congress
Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 1:30 PM CDT • M100 FG
Joe Sudbay, Congressman Jerry Nadler, Pam Spaulding, Rick Jacobs, Camilla Taylor

This panel will gather experts from the various fronts of the marriage equality struggle--the courts, Congress, state campaigns and online media--to answer the question: how do we work together to advance marriage equality in a challenging political environment? Too often activists, lawmakers and litigators work independently and don't communicate effectively with each other. Congressman Jerry Nadler, author of the Respect for Marriage Act, which would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), will join other leaders in the fight for marriage equality to build awareness and solidify alliances and strategies for moving forward.

Discuss
The State of Daily Kos in the DK4 Era
Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 3:00 PM CDT • L100 AB
Markos Moulitsas, Victoria Campbell, Claude Hayward, Elaine Lindelef, Will Rockafellow

Daily Kos founder and publisher Markos Moulitsas, with the help of key staff, will present a report on the transition of Daily Kos to its new DK4 platform and share the results of that transition.

Do it Again: Getting 2008 First-time Voters Out in 2012
Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 3:00 PM CDT • L100 H
Debbie Hines, Jeneba Ghatt, Judy Lubin, Kristal High, Rep. Donna Edwards

With high unemployment and foreclosure rates for many Americans--particularly African Americans--and the euphoria of hope and change sinking fast, the panel will discuss how to work online and offline compatibility to engage, energize and win back first-time 2008 voters, with an emphasis on youth and African American voters. We will discuss what is at stake for blacks and young adults and share ways to tell the story of those whose lives have been affected by health care reform, foreclosure assistance, Pell grants, and other reforms. We'll also look at how to combine online and offline efforts to engage members of this disaffected community in broader online discussions and actions.

Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 3:00 PM CDT • M100 FG
Representative Ellie Hill, Assemblyman Elliot Anderson, Senator Shannon Augare, Senator Kyrsten Sinema, Representative Jefferson Smith

The game has changed. What is it like to be a young politician in the modern world? Meet the nation's political rising stars--a group savvy at utilizing Twitter, Facebook and the blogospehere to engage and educate young voters.
