Grassroots Independents to Converge on NYC Feb. 16 at NYU Skirball Center

Every two years for the past 14 years, grassroots leaders of the organized independent movement from across America come together talk to each other, listen to each other, and appreciate the hard work and gutsy-ness of a growing movement of nonpartisan, non-ideological, non-box-ified outsider political cultural change agents. It's called the National Conference of Independents. This year will be the 7th biennial conference.

On February 16th, 2013, hundreds of independents will gather from all across the country to take stock of a growing movement that is reimagining America along nonpartisan and developmental lines.

The independent movement is raising a broad social reform question; should political parties be the singular vehicle for political participation and representation, or do we need new forms of political expression—forms that transfer political power from the parties to the people?

That's from the home page of the new website of National Conference of Independents sponsored by

On the site you can register (which you must do to attend), find helpful information for hotels and other resources to ease your stay (including some limited free housing for network activists), a blog-full of posts from past attendees -- do not miss this! - and video from past conferences...

And just BTW, The Hankster covered the 2011 National Conference live on livestream. If you would like to see this happen again, let me know. C-Span usually covers us, so you can always see that later, but there is something fun about live media!

So, go sign up for the rockin'est gathering of grassroots independents in the country gettin' organized!

Hope to see you there!
