Compass IV: Progressive Nirvana

Posted By on Tue, Apr 3, 2007 at 12:06 PM

There still time to get in on the Compass IV conference coming up in Nashville on April 13-14. The conference, put on by the Tennessee Alliance for Progress and billed with justification as the statewide gathering of progressives in Tennessee this year, will fly in two worthwhile keynote speakers.

One is Paul Waldman, a senior fellow at the progressive media watchdog outfit Media Matters for America, and author of Being Right Is Not Enough: What Progressives Must Learn from Conservative Success. Waldman holds a strategy session with progressive leaders on Friday the 13th and gives a keynote address at 9 am on Saturday.

The other is David Sirota, political journalist and former press secretary for Rep. (now Senator) Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont). Sirota is a senior editor of In These Times, a regular contributor to The Nation and The American Prospect, and the author of Hostile Takeover: How Big Money and Corruption Conquered Our Government—and How We Take It Back. He gives a keynote at 2:30 pm Saturday the 14th.

The Compass IV conference happens at the Cohn Adult Learning Center on Park Avenue, just off Charlotte. It's a can't-miss for Nashville progressives.
