After a two-month long process of scoring and discussing (and more scoring and discussing), we are excited to announce our 2012 agenda!
Our final list of 70 panels includes some timely topics like the 2012 elections, the Occupy movement and reproductive rights. But this year we’re also including some topics not often touched on at Netroots Nation, including transgender issues, criminal justice and fracking. There are also 30 super useful, hands-on training sessions led by some of the top trainers in the progressive movement.
Click here to peruse the full list of panels and trainings. (And check back frequently as we confirm and update our panelists.)
Special thanks to everyone who submitted proposals. We had almost 500 submissions this year, which gave us an amazing breadth of topics to consider.
We also want to sincerely thank all of the people who served on subcommittees and helped us read, score and consider all of these ideas. We were fortunate to draw upon their considerable experience and knowledge during this process. Out hat is off to:
