BENEFITING: TENNESSEE EQUALITY PROJECT FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jun 15, 2011
Registration CHECK, Hotel CHECK, Transportation....That's where you come in. The Netroots Nation Conference (http://www.netrootsnation.org/) is coming up in June in Minneapolis Minnesota and its this awesome national gathering of social media/blogger types who get together and learn from each other. I'm a crazy involved guy working for social justice issues in North East Tennessee with lots of organizations so this an awesome opportunity for me since I am dealing with rural communities and the Internet is WHERE WE LIVE. I checked on airfare from various locations and its going to cost me around $500. Now, to be honest, with all the traveling I already have to do across Eastern Tennessee there really is no way I can pay my rent, feed the dog and me and cover the travel to Minnesota. My thoughts on that are that I have to reach out to that online community I am trying to mobilize into a tool for change. So, our first CHALLENGE: NETROOTS NATION OR BUST!
