The seventh annual Netroots Nation conference is underway in Providence, R.I., as 3,000 progressive activists share online and offline strategies for mobilizing at the local and national level. Events take place at the Rhode Island Convention Center from June 7-10.
Netroots Nation offers an opportunity for AFSCME to offer support and share strategies with progressive allies — both within the labor movement and across organizational lines. Conference attendees from AFSCME’s Political Action and Communications departments participated in panels on how labor-progressive coalitions can elect state lawmakers who support working people and how to fight back in the face of relentless and vicious opposition from the anti-worker noise machine.
In addition, AFSCME is once again proud to be a premier sponsor of the conference, this year bringing live streaming coverage of the keynote and plenary sessions and key panels and breakout sessions to those who are unable to attend the event in person.
