Encouraging people of color to apply for Netroots Nation scholarship

The third annual gathering of the Netroots (formerly known as the YearlyKos Convention) will be held July 17–20 at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas.

Netroots Nation 2008 will include panels led by national and international experts; identity, issue and regional caucuses; prominent political, issue and policy-oriented speakers; a progressive film screening series; and the most concentrated gathering of progressive bloggers to date.

To help everyone get there, Netroots Nation is partnering with Democracy for America to offer scholarships to bring some of those activists to Austin to network with fellow progressives just like them.

The scholarship program will cover the cost of registration and lodging for at least nine activists.

The scholarship program is a way to ensure that activists of every age, background, and economic bracket, representing numerous points of view and all 50 states, are able to attend Netroots Nation. Because the more diverse the audience, the richer our experience in Austin will be.

Whether you’re an activist organizing locally to support a campaign or a blogger mobilizing communities for a common cause, this is your chance to show off what you’ve done to move the progressive agenda forward.
