Netroots Nation Immigration Panels: Take 2

by Jacquelyn Mahendra on 07/22/2010 at 12:27pm

I posted this up earlier in the week, but I wanted to make sure folks here in Vegas got a shot to join us for these fabulous immigration panels, screenings, and discussions at Netroots Nation. Please stop by, and say hello in the comments or on twitter!

Note that we’ll be showing off some original America’s Voice video at Friday’s 3pm immigration film screening with Justin Krebs. We’ll be helping out with the Immigration Caucus on Friday at noon, and we’ll be giving away Vegas-inspired DREAM Act scratch cards in the registration packets. Don’t forget to see if you’ve won and to sign the DREAM Act petition to our leaders in Washington — we’ll be delivering a copy to Senate Majority Leader Reid right here in Vegas!

Also, check out this year’s immigration blogger scholars– welcome to Vegas, to our talented scholars!

From the America’s Voice team, Adam Luna will be speaking Thursday at 3pm on a panel with former Police Chief Arturo Venegas and Arizona State Rep Kyrsten Sinema entitled, “Immigration Reform’s Strange Bedfellows: The Surprising Consensus that Reform will Improve American Jobs and Bolster Our Economy,” and yours truly will be on a panel Saturday at 4pm with Markos, founder and publisher of Daily Kos, and Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), who’s been fighting for immigration reform in what’s become ground zero of the nation’s immigration debate. It’s called, How Immigration Reform Sustains a Progressive Majority.

Full schedule below the jump…
