Netroots Nation ’17 News: If you were at the Netroots Nation ’17 conference in Atlanta, you had a chance to meet Emily Bookstein, our Youth Adviser and talk with her about what we offer in depth. There are pictures of her and our booth on our new Metaphor Project Facebook page (see the link above). Our biggest poster this year read “Say rules, not regulations,” and it resonated strongly with many who saw it!
Now more than ever, check out our Speaking American resources on this site, in my TEDx talk and in our book, Move Our Message: How to Get America’s Ear!
