Friday night at 6pm, Netroots Nation is giving something new a try: Ignite. At Ignite events, presenters give five-minute speeches with 20 slides that advance automatically every 15 seconds.
Attendees will hear from speakers like Darcy Burner, Arshad Hasan, Justin Krebs, and Stephanie Taylor. Hot topics include:
- How a pitcher of beer demonstrates what’s best about progressive politics.
- If we’re so rich in ideas and stuff, why are we so poor and scared now?
- Key principles and practices that are traditionally used in anarchist organizing, but can be powerful if used by progressives.
- The current state of queer media and its future.
- How I learned about power in the context of organizing, how to take down a dictator, how to do it over and over again, and how all of us have the potential to be David to their Goliath.
