2009 National Conference

Posted by laurelgerard on July 7, 2009

Tomorrow, July 8th, I will be attending the 2009 National Conference, taking place at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. This all day event will be a compilation of speeches, work sessions, and seminars. Speakers include former President Bill Clinton, the current Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and Secretary of Health and Human services Kathleen Sebelius. The work sessions will surround topics including labor rights, human rights, college affordability, health care, and climate change. The seminars will be on a variety of topics ranging from discussing media to discussing the hip hop movement.

    1. So stoked to see a blog post about the CPNC 09!!!! Glad you were there with us!

    2. My name is Becca and I work at Campus Progress, the youth outreach division of the Center for American Progress, here in Washington D.C. We just launched a campaign called “Students Over Banks” or “SOB” for short. We’re campaigning for more college affordability and we hope you can help us with a little bit of publicity. We know you have a lot of influence and we were wondering if you could share our promotional video for our campaign.

    The video is located here:
    And our campaign website is here:

    Thank you so much, we really want to get a lot of young people involved so all your help matters!
