Denver > Paris

Forget April in Paris — that’s nothing compared to April in Denver.

Paris may have its baguettes and blooming chestnut trees — but Denver has the National Conference for Media Reform. And you need to be there.

Seriously. Here are five reasons you need to book a flight and get yourself registered:

1. We just released our program to the world. It has 60 amazing sessions on the future of media and democracy — including:

  • This Conversation Is Being Recorded
  • Modern Feminism: Digital Activism, Real-World Action
  • From Billionaires to Big Media: Democracy Up for Grabs
  • Building the Web We Want: Protecting Internet Rights Everywhere
  • Pop Culture Critiques: Somewhere Between Love and Hate

2. This is no ordinary conference. We’ve got hands-on workshops, a film festival, book signings, parties and a dynamic public square with art galleries, poetry readings, a tech and media playground … even an old-school soapbox where you can get your 15 minutes of fame.

3. Amazing presenters. Our lineup of 350 presenters and performers includes comedians Jamie Kilstein (Citizen Radio) and Hari Kondabolu (Comedy Central Presents … ), hip-hop historian Davey D, Upworthy founder Eli Pariser, Democracy Now! co-hosts Amy Goodman and Juan González, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue, Public Enemy beatmaker Hank Shocklee, Jezebel.com founder Anna Holmes and Hollywood celebrities Evangeline Lilly (Lost) and Melissa Fitzgerald (The West Wing). 

4. Fun. Unusual amounts of it. Our program includes performances from artists, comedians and musicians, plus three can’t-miss parties. From Thursday evening through Sunday night, we’ve got you covered.

5. Top-quality grade-A awesome people. You’ll connect with people from around the country and leave inspired, informed — and ready to make change.

Check out the full program, book a hotel room and get registered before space runs out!

Hope to see you in Denver!
