RootsCamp this weekend ... pre-party tonightSubmitted Fri Feb 19 2010 09:55:00 GMT-0500 (EST) by Jason Z.
It's the most wonderful time of the year: RootsCamp!
Hosted by the New Organizing Institute, a great organization we're proud to call a Salsa user, RootsCamp is an essential stop on the online organizing training circuit. At ten bucks for a bustling "unconference" with political strategist and professional communicators who seriously know their onions, you'd be crazy not to come.
Since you're here in town anyway, do like the e.politics man says and join Wired For Change and Salsa Labs and get planted pre-Rootscamp tonight from 8 p.m. to late at the Salsa offices at 1700 Connecticut Avenue NW (the corner of Connecticut and R, right above the Starbucks).
'Twas the night before Rootscamp and all through DC Progressives were looking for something to see. Ready to talk about topics so varied, They begin looking 'round for a place to be merry.
When up above Dupont there rose such a cry. They said to themselves, "hey, let's go stop by!" On R street they found a party so sweet-- There was booze to be drunk and people to meet.
They wanted to drink and rock really hard But karaoke killed careers and georgetown killed bars. Come rock band! Come Guitar Hero! Come whiskey! Come Beer! Salsa Labs threw a rager, and you heard it here.
