More information about Netroots Nation - Including a DISCOUNT for dues-paying members of GAIN:
Since we all gathered in DC to be a part of President Obama's historic inauguration, we've seen some positive change take place—and we've started pushing major reform on issues like health care and climate change.
In the next 12 months, we'll be working together more than ever to push progressive policy into legislation. And there's no better place to strategize our priorities and plan how to make them a reality than at Netroots Nation, the annual Netroots convention that will be held in Pittsburgh this August.
At Netroots Nation, thousands of progressive activists meet to discuss important topics from the environment to the economy and strategize about how to organize and affect change.
And as an Democratic Gain member, you can attend this grassroots convention for just $225—$50 off the current rate.
