Netroots Nation '22 Update: Panels Announced

After successfully going all-virtual the last two years due to the pandemic, the Netroots Nation organizers are bringing back their live, in-person event this year—NN22 is happening August 18-20 in Pittsburgh.

Everything that makes the convention one of the wonders of the modern world is on the schedule: practical training sessions, A-list keynoters, and blue-ribbon panels featuring experts with an amazing amount of smarts between their ears. If you're wondering what kind of panel sessions are on the schedule this year, look no further than below the fold, because they've just been announced and we've got a preview and the magic link to all of ‘em.


Goddess Mary Rickles delivers the goods...

This year's event includes conversations about the upcoming midterms and strategies to win; conversations about protecting democracy both here and abroad; and sessions digging into pressing issues—from abortion access and police reform to climate change and gun reform.

Here is a sampling of our panels for 2022 (you can view both panels and trainings here):

Stay tuned for keynoters and other fun stuff in future updates. Until then, make sure your reservations are locked in and your walkin' shoes are getting properly broken in. And follow NN on Twitter here and on Facebook here.

And now, our feature presentation...

Puppy Pic of the Day: Guardian Teddy…

CHEERS to little pricks for little pricks. Those darn kids, with their Sesame Street, their Barney, their Teletubbies, their Chutes and Ladders, and their Ovaltine. All they do is take take take, getting their way every damn time as our country spirals down the plastic potty-training commode thanks to their unfettered greed. And now they're coming for our Covid-19 vaccines with help from the obviously-bribed-with-candy federal government that's been in the pocket of their OshKosh B'Goshes since the beginning:

On Saturday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky signed off on Covid vaccines for the youngest Americans. Her endorsement means shots can begin........
