Media Matters, for helping us Live Liberally, by countering conservative culture, promoting progressive infrastructure and giving all of us liberals something to talk about. The Honorable Scott Stringer Borough President of Manhattan, for working to allow us to Eat Liberally in NYC through his office’s important and creative work on food policy. Jack & Jill Politics and its founders Cheryl Contee & Baratunde Thurston, for inviting us to Read Liberally as their online community has increasingly contributed to our national conversation.
Sam Seder, of Air America, is MCing. That’s what’s up yall! If you’re in NYC please come! We also have a very limited number of guest spots avail. Holla if you’re interested in one of those. This is a great organization that’s helping create the social space for progressives to connect and build. We’re excited they’ve called on us to be recognized.
