We're live streaming from Chicago!

Dear Virginia,

The PDA Grassroots Leadership Conference is underway! I am writing from my hotel room in Chicago, and grassroots leaders are arriving by the minute. It's going to be an exciting weekend. Check out the blog this weekend for updates and a live stream of the sessions.

The conference is not the only thing underway, the Democratic Party Platform Committee is meeting this weekend in Cleveland, and two of our Healthcare NOT Warfare Co-chairs will be in attendance. Donna Smith is in Cleveland for today's meeting, and Norman Solomon will be in Cleveland for tomorrow's meeting. We'll report on these meetings on the blog, too.

If you haven't yet signed the The Nation's open letter to Barack Obama, please read it and sign it here.

Yours in the movement,

Laura Bonham
