What Others Say About Netroots Nation

“I always leave Netroots Nation feeling inspired, determined and proud. These fighters helped lead the charge for the CFPB and had my back in the fight for a Senate seat. Now we’re fighting for a government that works for all people—not just the high and mighty.” –Sen. Elizabeth Warren

“Netroots Nation is a major stop on the road to the Democratic nomination.” –CNN (full story)

“It was a lit occasion for comrades to kick it, build, and plot. Also, for my first (Netroots conference), it felt very easy to engage and navigate. ” –Maurice Mitchell, National Director, Working Families Party

“Netroots Nation is the best organizing conference for progressives nationwide. I attend every year to learn new tactics, connect with key influencers in the movement, talk about the issues, and share best practices I have learned over the past year. It’s a can’t-miss!” –Laura Packard, attendee and presenter

“As a volunteer at Netroots Nation, I love doing my small part for the largest progressive convention in the U.S. The perks are myriad and mighty! There are opportunities to take part in training sessions, learn from expert panelists, and hear from nationally and internationally known speakers who are at the forefront of issues and causes that matter so much. I can take everything I learn back to my community and plough it into the work we’re doing for the next campaign cycle and the causes we’re organizing around.” –Kim Yaman, volunteer

“All the trainings were useful, but the Advanced Emailing presentation was worth the ticket price by itself. A fantastic three days of issue discussions, in-person networking with people I previously knew only on the internet, and new skills and ideas from the trainings. First-timer but I’ll definitely be back next year and hope to bring some colleagues as well.”  –A.P., first-time attendee

“Netroots Nation has had such a powerful impact on me (I’ve attended 4 times). It has inspired me to see how I can influence both civic and student leadership structures in my life.” –Steve Marics, attendee (age 19)

“The best part is always the camaraderie. I came into this year’s convention with my battery drained, feeling isolated and depressed. Connecting with my fellow activists, especially those working on issues I don’t encounter every day, was invigorating.” –Netroots Nation 2019 survey response

“Meeting with activists, listening to the incredible work they are doing in the progressive movement and networking to collaborate. As a first time Netroots attendee, this was by far the true value of Netroots for me.” –Netroots Nation 2019 survey response
