Netroots Nation

Netroots Nation is a political convention for American progressive political activists, originally organized by readers and writers of Daily Kos, a liberal political blog. It was previously called YearlyKos. The 7th Annual Netroots Nation conference will be held in Providence, Rhode Island from June 7-10, 2012.


The origin of Netroots Nation is traced to a time when a tremendous and growing number of citizens gathered every day in the virtual world to raise their collective voice and proactively influence their government. That group is broadly called the Netroots and has since grown to include progressive organizations and politicians who use new media technologies to communicate with their constituents. The convention rebranded to Netroots Nation in 2007 in an effort to more accurately reflect the makeup of its audience and mission of implementing programs that teach and empower Netroots communities to effect change in the public sphere.

Netroots Nation is a joint project between Netroots Nation, a non-profit non-partisan organization that aligns itself with the Democratic Party, with support from the Netroots Foundation.
