A one-day crash course that explores progressive student leadership from an insider’s perspective, the Conference will feature a powerful schedule of skill-building workshops; effective advocacy and media training seminars; and panels and forums led by some of the top progressive newsmakers we’ve been talking about at CampusProgress.org.
Confirmed speakers so far include: Thomas Frank, bestselling author of “What’s The Matter With Kansas?”; Dee Dee Myers, White House Press Secretary to President Clinton and consultant to NBC’s “The West Wing”; Adonal Foyle, starting center, NBA Golden State Warriors, and founder, Democracy Matters; Carol Browner, Administrator, Environmental Protection Agency, under President Clinton; John Passacantando, executive director, Greenpeace US; Susan Rice, Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Clinton Administration; Donna Brazile, political strategist.
This is a chance for progressive students to connect and network with other students, top political leaders, policy experts, and journalists from all over the country. It’s an opportunity to directly engage with Campus Progress by sharing your stories, your campus strategies, and your views. It’s a time for you to speak up about the issues that matter most to you.
