Organizing Tools Shootout

Back for an unprecedented THIRD year, it’s the Great Netroots Nation Organizing Tools Shootout! Data and online tools are a big part of progressive organizing, and keystones in building from the netroots base out wider into our communities. New tools like LoudSauce, DS Political and POPVOX and many others are the building blocks of the shift from top-down and broadcast models to a distributed, participatory and more deeply democratic future. Come hear the inside stories on how these tools are being designed and built, the impact they’re already having on campaigns and organizations, and what they can do to help you become a more powerful and more effective activist and leader.

Screening: "The Invisible War"

LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED, special thanks to Women Donors Network

From Ocsar-nominated director Kirby Dick and Emmy-nominated producer Amy Ziering, comes The Invisible War, a groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of our country’s most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within the military.  Today, a female soldier in Iraq or Afghanistan is more likely to be raped by a fellow service member than killed by enemy fire with the number of assaults in the last decade alone in the hundreds of thousands.

Focusing on the powerfully emotional stories of several young women and men, the film reveals the systemic cover up of the crimes against them and follows their struggles to rebuild their lives and fight for justice.  The Invisible War features hard-hitting interviews with high-ranking military officials and members of Congress that reveal the perfect conditions that exist for rape in the military, its history of cover-up, and what can be done to bring about much needed change.

The Invisible War will be in select theaters across America on JUNE 22, we’re excited to give Netroots Nation attendees a sneak peek.  Go to www.InvisibleWarMovie.com for information.

Panelists: Kirby Dick, Amy Ziering
