We’re so excited to kick off our annual conference, WDN Connect 2014: Imagine 2030, this week! This year we’re thinking big and imagining what our organization will look like in 2030. Manuel Pastor will facilitate our pre-conference, a learning lab that will explore the different components of social movements and experiences from movement leaders. Our opening keynote will come from Angela Glover Blackwell, the founder and chief executive officer of PolicyLink. To help us think about important trends coming into focus in the near future, we will have a series of short talks followed by facilitated group discussions.
