***Crossposted from The California Ripple Effect***
I can’t wait. The summit this weekend should prove to be an excellent opportunity for current and emerging leaders in the movement to come together and talk shop. With such a diverse and dedicated group, we should be able to come up with some great ideas, and all get behind the best ones.
I’m especially excited that it’s here in my hometown, Los Angeles. Frankly, I think there’s a lot of work to be done here, so I’m glad our gargantuan and unwieldy city is getting some deserved attention at such an early stage.
For all the deets, just go to www.eqca.org/equalitysummit.
Registration is closed, but the roughly fifty organizations on the planning committee are dedicated to making the summit transparent and accessible to the entire community, whether they can attend in person, or not. For the latest conference agenda, videos and up-to-date info from summit organizers, check out the Official Equality Summit Blog.
Yours truly will be liveblogging the summit and posting videos as well. This way members of the netroots community who are unable to attend in the flesh will be able follow and comment on the proceedings. Press is also invited.
For me, a highlight will be the presentation on the Prop 8 post-election California voter survey, presented by Obama consultant David Binder.
