DWN Conference: Detention Reform advocates gather in DC
[youtube = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsjjJGBXkl8&feature=player_embedded] Today the Detention Watch Network's national member conference is kicking off in DC. Unfortunately I won't be able to attend the full conference, but if you want to keep up with the happenings, you can follow @willcoley or @DetentionWatch and keep track via the #DWN hashtag on Twitter. Here are a few of the updates that have come in so far today.
Looks like the priorities of the conference are all about restoring fairness and due process to the system - something we can all get behind.
Also, if you're going to be around, come check out our panel on Saturday morning at 9am. I will be speaking along with Will Coley from Aquifer Media and Matias Ramos from the United We Dream Coalition. Our panel will discuss the use of social media and storytelling in recent successful campaigns.
