This June 20-23, the eighth annual Netroots Nation conference will take place in San Jose, CA. They've invited Rootstrikers to attend, and have sweetened the deal with special discounted admission.
Each year, Netroots Nation brings together thousands of online activists, grassroots organizers, bloggers, content producers, artists and labor and organizational leaders for four days of thought-provoking panels, practical trainings, inspiring keynotes, film screenings and fun networking opportunities.
New York is fighting back against the undue influence of big money interests on their elections, and they need our help, Rootstrikers.
Citizens led by over 100 reform groups are campaigning for Fair Elections for New York: public financing of elections, lower contribution limits, and strong enforcement. If they succeed, they will not only change politics as usual in Albany, they will also send a strong message across the country that despite Congress's inaction, citizens are not waiting to take back their democracy.
Rootstrikers across the country are taking action today to raise awareness about how companies whose products we buy every day spend millions of dollars to influence our elections. Every item they scan will be tracked here, so you can follow along, or you can download the Biz Vizz app and do some influence tracking of your own.
