Take Back America Conference This Week

-- by Dave Johnson

I am leaving in the morning to attend the Take Back America 2005 conference in Washington, DC. I will be traveling all day Tuesday. The conference is Wednesday - Friday. I hope I will be able to post some observations about the conference while I am there.


If you are attending this conference, drop me a line!

Dave, we hope you can make it out to Washington for the Campaign for America's Future's 2006 "Take Back America" conference too! We'd love to have you on our blogger boulevard again. Email Christian Norton at cnorton@ourfuture.org if you can make it.

We announced a lineup of prime time speakers last week for the conference to be held at the Washington Hilton from Monday, June 12 to Wednesday, June 14.

With a growing majority of Americans believing the country is headed in the wrong direction, thousands of progressive leaders will gather to discuss strategy to create a political force that promotes the “common good,” in contrast with the corrupt special interests that have dominated Washington over the last several years.
