PHB Video: Netroots Nation 2010 LGBT Caucus Wrap
This year’s LGBT caucus was not one of the sessions taped by Netroots Nation, but I do have video of the wrap session that I shot from the podium. As co-moderators, Mike Rogers and I formed breakout sessions for attendees to develop ideas and take-away action items that we could discuss progress on next NN, which will be in Minneapolis.
We asked for volunteers to be the breakout session facilitators and we had fantastic leaders step up.
The sessions were on How To Work With…
* Allies: Barbara McCullough-Jones, Executive Director, Arizona Progress, and Arshad Hasan, Executive Director, Democracy for America;
* The White House and Congress: Andy Szekeres, Finance Director, No on 1 Protect Maine Equality Campaign;
* LGBT legacy organizations: Denis Dison, VP, External Affairs, Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund and Leadership Institute;
* The mainstream media: Kerry Eleveld, Washington Correspondent, The Advocate.
Here’s the video of the ideas/action items generated.
