Progressives look to 2020 at Netroots Nation conference

 in New Orleans

Netroots activists offer hope for 2020

The largest gathering of progressives in the country got under way in New Orleans on Thursday. It’s the thirteenth Netroots meeting – but the event has taken on a new significance since the 2016 election and the subsequent wave of activism and progressive candidates for office.

A number of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have travelled to Louisiana for the event as they bid to tout their progressive credentials. Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Cory Booker will be in attendance over the next few days as Democrats begin to jostle for a primary race which has almost already begun.

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
