Netroots Nation '22 Update

After successfully going all-virtual last year due to the pandemic, the Netroots Nation organizers are bringing back their live, in-person event this year. It's a late-summer shindig—August 18-20 in Pittsburgh.

Everything that makes the convention one of the wonders of the modern world is still scheduled: 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 training 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.


Training Director Elana Levin brings the goods…

You can register for the convention here.

C&J will keep you in the loop as more panels and speakers are announced. In the meantime, you can follow NN on Twitter here and on Facebook here.

And now, our feature presentation...
