The  will be at Netroots Nation t I believe in Netroots Nation so much that I’m a member of the board of directors. Needless to say, I’m really looking forward to this celebratory year for the Netroots. I hope you’ll join us. Here’s what Dr. Dean, author of Howard Dean‘s Prescription for Real Healthcare Reform, had to say in his email today:

As you know, I’ve been working with Democracy for America—with support from all of you—on a huge grassroots campaign for the choice of a public health insurance option.

We’ve collected petition signatures, written letters to the editor, held town halls and more in an effort to educate Americans on the necessity of passing real healthcare reform. And it’s working—76 percent of Americans now say they support the choice of a public health insurance option.

There’s still work to be done.

We must keep the pressure on Congress and those in Washington who oppose real change. We must keep up our efforts to get our message out to all Americans with letters to the editor and neighborhood canvasses. And I will continue to speak out in my nationwide tour of town halls, targeted rallies, and T.V. appearances.

In fact, I hope you can join me at one of my next big events. I’ll be hosting a town-hall style keynote session at the Netroots Nation convention in Pittsburgh on Friday, August 14. If you can make it to Pittsburgh, this is a convention you don’t want to miss.


This town hall style keynote won’t be a one-way conversation. I’ll be answering your questions, as well as answering questions submitted in advance online. We’ll chat about obstacles and next steps. Who the leaders fighting for a public option really are and who aren’t. And what’s next in the Stand with Dr. Dean Campaign.

I’ve spoken at Netroots Nation conventions before, but this is the first time we’ve been able to make it interactive and conversational. You know I don’t pull any punches. I’m looking forward to speaking honestly with you about how to pass meaningful reform that makes sure everyone in America can get the heatlhcare they need.

The keynote will be held Friday morning at 9 a.m. If you haven’t already registered, click here to sign up.

I hope you can join me in Pittsburgh.

Thank you for everything you do,


Governor Howard Dean, M.D.
Founder, Democracy for America
