For seven years now I have been blogging and building up the NH Labor News to be the strong progressive news outlet that it has become. While there are many people who contribute content to the NH Labor News, the majority of the work is done by me, on my free time.
Over the years I have asked for a little help from all of you to help offset some of the costs associated with running the site or to attend training classes.
Today is one of those days.
Next month I will be attending the annual Netroots Nation convention, in Atlanta Georgia. Thanks to a generous donation from the United Steelworkers my ticket to the convention is covered. However, this means that I must pay for travel and hotel charges on my own.
Help offset the cost of attending Netroots Nation in Atlanta by making a donation of $10, $20, or $50.
A little information about Netroots Nation.
Netroots is one of the largest gatherings of progressives in the country. The convention brings together labor unions, women’s health advocates, LGBTQ advocates, bloggers and organizers from across the country. The three day convention hosts hundreds of different learning sessions on every progressive issue we are facing here in NH and across the country. These classes help teach me how to better communicate our message as well as how to boost our reach through social media. This is where I learned much of the information that I teach at some of the local trainings like the NH Progressive Summit.
Over the years I have seen Vice President Joe Biden, Sen Bernie Sanders, Sen Elizabeth Warren, dozens of Congressional Representatives, Governor Howard Dean, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, AFT President Randi Wiengarten, NEA President Lilly Garcia and faith leaders like the Rev Dr William Barber.
This year I am looking forward to seeing Vice President Al Gore, Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), and Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI).
If you can, please make a donation to help offset the costs of this trip. If you do not want to make a donation through PayPal, email me directly at NHLabor (at) Gmail.com and I can provide my home address where checks can be sent.
