Iliff on the Road: Netroots Nation Gathering, San Jose, CA
Description: Iliff will host an information table at Netroots Nation Gathering in San Jose, CA.
The Bay Area is homebase to a large part of the progressive movement. It’s the home of Harvey Milk. Cesar Chavez organized up and down the Valley. Daily Kos, MoveOn.org and Change.org started here. Rebuild the Dream, CREDO and Citizen Engagement Labs (accelerator for Color of Change, Presente, Ultraviolet and others) are based here, as well as organizations like Sierra Club, Rainforest Action Network, the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights and Green For All.
California as a whole often leads the nation in pushing progressive policies and outcomes. It has long led the country in environmental policies, and in 2010 when a sea of red washed over the nation, that wave stopped at the Sierras.
Date: June 20-23
Location: San Jose Convention Center 150 West San Carlos St. San Jose, California 95110
