Today, Netroots Nation announced that White House Communications Director, Dan Pfeiffer, will address the conference next week and participate in a Q&A with the more than 2,000 progressive activists in the audience. The session, like all at Netroots, is open to credentialed press.

Netroots Nation, the largest progressive gathering of the year, will happen June 16-19th in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
With the 2012 election cycle already underway, many are wondering whether Obama can motivate his base like he did in 2008. For the sixth year in a row, Netroots Nation will bring together more than 2,000 progressive activists and leaders to discuss key issues, strategize for upcoming political battles and organize for the long-term.
Also last week, Netroots announced that Representatives Polis and Edwards will hold a briefing on the DCCC’s 'Red to Blue' program and Jeremy Bird, national field director for the Obama campaign, will hold a session on the campaign's organizing strategy.
