~There's a Short Video - a minute and a half - and you probably know people in it. Click here for the video.

~What Justin Krebs said: "Trainings and workshops, speakers and an unconference, price-points for everyone, great progressive partners... . I strongly encourage folks to go.  Campaign staffs can get a serious training in new media, data, tech, etc.  More seasoned organizations can rub elbows with the next generation of activist leaders.  Candidates should all find a way to connect with this energy."

~What Elana Levin said: "This conference is for communicators, organizers, and fundraisers. Members and staff at unions, nonprofits, member organizations, and campaigns. Board members, member-organizers, elected officials, and their staffers. Hackers, occupiers, free-agents, and trouble-makers."



~From the organizers of Organizing 2.0:

Organizing New York will bring together hundreds of leaders, organizers, fundraisers, techies and activists to share our collective wisdom, skills, and talents. Join us!


We will have workshops, discussions, consulting and networking opportunities, visionary speakers and a provocative debate around strategy and practices. Over three days right by Wall Street, we will bring together a thousand people to learn from each other, share stories and strategies and build our skills, organizations and movements.


Our featured tracks are in Online OrganizingAdvocacy and Organizing, and Grassroots Fundraising. The agenda is constructed around the needs of staff, members and leaders of union locals, community based organizations, advocacy nonprofits and individual activists.


This year’s conference brings together groups with long track records in running successful conferences and trainings: Organizing 2.0Working FamiliesThe New York Civic Engagement TableWellstone Action,RootscampDemocracy for America and many more.
