Netroots Nation Takes Over Providence, RI
June 8, 2012 by Maureen McCarty, HRC Associate Director of Digital Media
On this second day of the Netroots Nation conference, there's plenty of attention being paid to the LGBT community, particularly marriage equality. This morning HRC blogger extraordinaire Dan Rafter checked out the panel Blogging for Transgender Equality, and we'll both be at the Marriage Equality Caucus this afternoon.
The importance of the prominence of LGBT issues at a progressive conference cannot be overstated. It is a unique opportunity to build strategic alliances across the progressive spectrum. Advocates for environmental issues, women's issues, social justice, labor and more can connect to exchange ideas and pave the way for future collaboration.
HRC is excited to be a part of Netroots Nation this weekend, and we're looking forward to building on the relationships forged this weekend.
If you spot Dan and me floating around this weekend, be sure to say hi!
