on the success of 2012 RootsCamp DC and 2010 RootsCamp MA, this progressive  
“unconference” will take place the weekend of April 6-7 at SEIU 1199 in  
Dorchester. The all volunteer RootsCamp MA Organizing Committee invites you  
to attend and connect with a diverse and inclusive group of activists from  
across the state.<br>
<br><b>What is <a href="http://www.bit.ly/rootscampma"  
target="_blank">RootsCamp MA</a>?</b> A unique space and opportunity for  
the progressive community to come together, employing a simple and  
participatory</span><span  
style="line-height:19px;color:rgb(39,39,39);font-family:verdana,geneva,sans-serif">“unconference”  
model that allows organizers focused on different issues to meet and  
debrief in a way that promotes shared learning and engagement. Rather than  
traditional panels or PowerPoints, participants set the agenda and have  
real live conversations about valuable organizing lessons taken from the  
field, both online and offline. Attendees have the opportunity to establish  
lasting new partnerships with organizers from all over the state. This  
model, first launched in 2006 by the New Organizing Institute, has proven  
very successful across the country. Learn more at</span><span

is it organized?</b> It's an "unconference" - meaning YOU get  
to present a session without having to submit a proposal ahead of time. The  
whole point of RootsCamp MA is for local organizers to own and drive the  
conversation. It's the only conference this year where you are  
guaranteed to have a chance to talk about what YOU want to talk about.  
It's part reflection: a candid environment to share what's working  
and what isn't. It's also a chance to get to know each other better  
and plan the year ahead.</span><br
