BROUGHT TO LOUISIANA BY Solidarity Project Advocacy Network
RootsCampLA is the convening of over 150 forward thinking activists in the state. It’s brought to Louisiana every year by Solidarity Project Advocacy Network. It has been the progressive event of the year for the past eight years whether your issue is maintaining democratic control of schools, worker’s rights, #BlackLivesMatter, voting rights, women’s rights, transit, racial equality, LGBTQIA, disability rights, healthcare, or housing – it’s all about a more equitable Louisiana.
The idea is to bring together activists of all stripes and have an honest exchange of ideas and sharing of skills. When we learn from one another, we take away new ideas, make new connections, and strengthen our work.
This isn’t your everyday gathering; it’s an “unconference.” Instead of pre-set powerpoints and “expert” panels, participants like you design sessions and decide the program. This doesn’t mean “experts” aren’t in the room. They are — many of them are you. RootsCampLA is about fostering homegrown talent.
