We are so excited to announce that we are partnering with Democracy Initiative, NN/New Media Mentors, Organizing 2.0, and re:power to expand our post-election career conference into something even more amazing that you may have attended in the past.
RootsCamp brings together a coalition of leaders in the Democratic and Progressive political, electoral, advocacy and governing space to debrief and use 2020 hindsight to dissect what we all just experienced with an eye to moving forward together and plotting what comes next. There will be workshops, trainings, panel discussions, consulting and networking opportunities, visionary speakers, an organization expo, and a provocative debate around strategy and practices.
RootsCamp will be taking place online December 11-12th. We will be scheduling panels throughout the day, so you can participate no matter where you are.Our goal is to provide an open and transparent place for conversation around what happened on the 2020 campaign, how we move forward in 2021, 2022, and beyond, and to build a community for the amazing people who did the hard work on campaigns to help gain power and support them as they develop their activism and careers.RootsCamp 2020 includes segmented programs in which individual participants can move back and forth seamlessly between each from the comfort of your home or wherever you may be.
Un-conference Style Programming: The RootsCamp “unconference” model allows organizers to meet and debrief in a way that promotes shared learning and engagement. Participants are the presenters! Participants not only take away lessons to apply to their own work, they establish lasting new partnerships with organizers from all over the nation.
Career Panels: Sessions are designed to help campaign talent navigate a post-election world. The panels will highlight the breadth of the progressive movement, the skills you need to hone, the sectors you can work in, and the movements and issue areas to work in next. Hear and learn from leaders about their career journey and get advice on how and where to seek out new opportunities to succeed in your career. Individual sessions will be on skills, sectors, and movements.
Skills Training: In coordination with some of the leading trainers in our space today, we’re offering pre-planned sessions in field organizing, fundraising, digital tools, and more. Thank you to The Center for Digital Strategy, New Media Mentors, Re: Power for helping us craft this portion of the event.
Political Marketplace, Organizational Expo, Hiring Hall: Our platform has a virtual setting where organizations can market their programs, products, and services, along with any jobs they have available.One-to-One Networking: Participants can directly connect with other participants, organizations, firms, and panelists through chat tools, Zoom, and direct scheduling helping strengthen the movement while we are all stuck at home.
