If anyone lives closer to the Alexandria area or is able to make the drive in, this is something you should know about as a feminist:
RootsCamp LA is an annual organizers' retreat. It is an opportunity for activists across the state to come together and reflect on successes and failures, as well as train and plan for future endeavors. RootsCamp is an incubator for fresh ideas, lively discussion and, most importantly, action-driven learning among very diverse groups of passionate progressive activists.
RootsCamp is a national organizers' conference held by New Organizing Institute in Washington, DC. Last year, Louisiana was part of a national effort to hold the event on a statewide level in 25 states. Of the original 25, Louisiana was 6th highest in recruitment and 2nd highest in fundraising.
This year promises to be bigger, better, and more diverse. You don't want to miss this ultimate opportunity to meet with other powerhouse progressives - future collaborators and old friends from all over the state.
Room blocks have been reserved at the Best Western Inn and Suites and the Courtyard Marriott.
