Session Details

Friday, June 08
11:30 am to 12:30 pm
The red state/blue state divide is not only simplistic, it's misleading. So says Dante Chinni of Patchwork Nation, a project that aims to tease out truth from America's crazy quilt of geographic and demographic diversity without hiding from its complexity. A journalist and author with two decades of experience, Chinni will explain how the true building blocks of this nation are communities, and how their unique perspectives on the economy and politics will play into the 2012 elections. Then, he will lead a discussion on how to use this information to do smart and innovative political stories in your community.
