Netroots Nation provides an online and in-person campus for exchanging ideas and learning how to be more effective in using technology to influence the public debate.

The sixth annual gathering of Netroots Nation (formerly known as the YearlyKos Convention) will include panels led by national and international experts; identity, issue and regional caucuses; prominent political, issue and policy-oriented speakers; a progressive film screening series; and a concentrated gathering of progressive bloggers.

The origin of Netroots Nation is traced to a time when a tremendous and growing number of citizens gathered every day in the virtual world to raise their collective voice and proactively influence their government. That group is broadly called the Netroots and has since grown to include progressive organizations and politicians who use new media technologies to communicate with their constituents.

Netroots Nation is a project of Bloggerpower.org, a 501(c)4 organization, with the generous support of the Netroots Arts and Education Initiative (NAEI).
