<div dir="ltr">Hi fellow activists and organizers<div><br><div><p  
style="font-size:13px;margin:0px;font-family:Arial">As we head into the  
home stretch I wanted give you a comprehensive update and remind you about  
a few actions. But first I want to thank everyone for their support. We  
really couldn't have pulled together this grassroots  
"unconference" in just 10 weeks without the support of <a

<p style="font-size:13px;margin:0px;font-family:Arial">RootsCamp MA is  
participant driven and we encourage everyone to come prepared to present on  
a topic, facilitate a dialogue, or brainstorm best practices. Sessions are  
determined the morning of the event.  If you have an expertise to share,  
are willing to facilitate a dialogue, or bring folks together to brainstorm  
best practices - then you should suggest a session. Some of you will come  
to the event with a session in mind and others will add to "The  
Wall" throughout the weekend. No credentials required. The focus is on  
communicating ideas, not fancy PowerPoints. We're encouraging you to  
change up your rote presentation and instead bring open ended questions and  
your curiosity. <i>NOTE: There will be one break-out room with a/v set-up  
for sessions on online organizing and visual communication. </i>Read
