Mobilize.org’s Party for the Presidency Conference is coming up in Hollywood, CA on December 29 - 31, 2007. The Party for the Presidency is a leadership development conference that will bring together the 435 individuals (one from each Congressional district) to learn from one another and unite behind a common vision - Democracy 2.0. Each individual will be nominated as a top young activist demonstrating a citizen-centered approach to engagement in their community. They will be given the opportunity to present their best practices, learn from organizing experts, and leave as a commission Democracy 2.0 Ambassador. The Party for the Presidency will focus on encouraging young people to identify the key issues in their communities and helping build advocacy strategies to not only become part of the solution, but create the solution.
They are looking to recruit young people between the ages of 16 and 30, who are:
- Working to make a difference in your community by being politically involved
- Advocating for the issues they feel are most important in their communities, or informing people on the importance of civic engagement and volunteerism
- Who have helped involve your fellow citizens in community service, public policy development, or identifying and solving local problems
