Session Type(s): Plenary

Starts: Saturday, Jun. 22 7:30 PM (Eastern)

This year we’re trying something a little different. We’ll be closing Netroots Nation 2013 with an engaging, fast-paced keynote that will inspire and entertain.

Using the Ignite format, each speaker will be given 5 minutes to talk, while 20 slides that advance automatically every 15 seconds are shown on the screen.

The theme for this year is Inspiration, Innovation and Progress. We’ve assembled a great group of speakers who will share their unique experiences and personal stories.

Over the course of the program you’ll hear from Aspen Baker, Ash Beckham, John Brougher, Rafael Casal, Zack Exley, Ian Inaba, Sally Kohn, Amanda Marcotte, Colin Mutchler, Femi Oke, Favianna Rodriguez, Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, Anat Shenker-Osorio, Joel Silberman and Zach Wahls. Jasiri X will also perform during the program. Netroots Nation regulars Jenifer Fernandez Ancona and Adam Mordecai will co-host the evening.
