The international climate negotiations in Paris are officially underway, and the hype has been completely over-the-top. Pundits and commentators are saying that the next week will decide whether or not humanity deals with climate change. From the media coverage, you would think that the UN negotiations were like an episode of 24, with global leaders counting down the remaining hours left to save the world.

But that couldn’t be further from the truth. What happens in the negotiating rooms, though important, isn't what really matters. What matters is what happens in the streets.

Building 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 RootsCamp MA Organizing Committee, a grassroots group of community organizers and activists, invites you to attend and connect with a diverse and inclusive group of activists from across the state.

What is RootsCamp MA? A unique space and opportunity for progressive organizers to come together, employing a simple and participatory “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 www.bit.ly/rootscampma.

Transgender people face the most basic and blatant discrimination every day - from being denied access to employment, housing, or healthcare, to being physically attacked because of the way they look or dress. Through the Transgender Rights Project, GLAD puts our litigation, legislative, and educational assets to work in a focused way to establish clear legal protections for the transgender community. Join us to learn more!
