RootsCamp is an open forum on any topic related to the Fall 2006 elections, including local, state and national races. Anyone can suggest a topic for discussion. Participants initiate conversations by (1) attending the event and (2) writing their discussion ideas on a whiteboard.
The primary goal will be to collectively answering the following:
- What did we learn in 2006?
- How can we apply those lessons in 2008 and beyond (See Politic Exchange)?
- What are our next steps to strengthen political engagement?
While this is an implementation of a progressive idea, the Bloomington Roots Camp is not meant to be a "progressive" event in terms of political bias. The intent of this camp is to facilitate open discussion that includes all perspectives.
