Fall Conference Offers Perks for Journos

The Campaign for America’s Future is hooking up with civil rights activist Van Jones and MoveOn.org for the “Take Back the American Dream” conference, from October 3 to 5 in Washington.

Sec. of Labor Bob Reich, who will be speaking at the conference, said, “I’ll be at the Take Back the American Dream conference on Oct. 3 to talk with you about a movement to Rebuild the Dream. We need our progressive version of the Tea Party – but focused on a positive agenda for good jobs, growing wages, and a strong middle class.”

A bonus for journalists… As in past years, they offered credentialed journalists and bloggers free registration to the Take Back the American Dream conference, as well as free meals and discounted tickets to the Gala Awards Dinner. If interested, email publicist Liz Rose at lrose@ourfuture.org. She adds, “If your news organization prefers to pay for registration, that’s great but please still let me know that you are coming so I can have enough workspace for journalists ready.”
