HIGHLIGHTS FROM THURSDAY
The first day of Netroots Nation 2015 has come to a close, and our 10th year is off to a great start! For a recap of some of the top moments from yesterday’s action, check out this video produced by Blue Nation Review.
Here are a few more highlights from Day 1:

• From Twitter: “Yall. My heart is so full listening and feeling all the amazing efforts for justice here at #nn15.” —@mcbyrne
• Our opening keynote featured activists from across Arizona who spoke of some of the most unjust practices in our immigration system—racial profiling, police brutality, human rights issues in the detention system and more. Ferguson activist Ashley Yates and Rep. Donna Edwards also spoke. Click here to watch the archived stream and check out our Storify wrap-up.
