Three events are coming up this summer which will inform our campaigns to take back our State and Nation.

The National Conference on Media Reform is always great. I have attended two of them, came away each time inspired and greatly informed on the issues of media, FCC reform, access to bandwidth, Net neutrality etc. Speakers include Senator Byron Dorgan, Dan Rather, Bill Moyers, Van Jones, Amy Goodman and Robert McChesney.

Kansas City Democracy for America is hosting the DFA Campaign Training Academy this June. Many of us attended the Academy in Columbia last April. Brush up your campaign and organizing skills and acquire new ones at this weekend training in June. This very low cost event may be the best thing you do this year to take back Missouri.


Once known as Yearly Kos, the NetRoots Nation Convention in Austin Texas promises to be very good this year. The schedule is not yet finalized but you can count on Marcos to produce an amazing weekend:
