Internet activism has upended American politics by amplifying new voices, connecting disparate social networks, shifting campaign funding, enhancing public scrutiny and electing unconventional candidates. This impact has been most profound on the Left. This panel will convene leaders and writers from the emerging OpenLeft movement as well as traditional progressives and offline activists for a lively and significant discussion of the past, present and future of the American Left. Speakers will include Katrina vanden Heuvel, Publisher and Editor of The Nation; Ari Melber, blogger for, among others, The Huffington Post; Matt Stoller, blogger and the president of BlogPAC; Zephyr Teachout, the architect of Howard Dean’s internet strategy; and others. Co-sponsored by The Nation.
