Annabel Park: From Netroots Nation To Coffee Parties?
Update: Sorry, had missed this with more from Left Coast Rebel.
Since then, she has been associated with a large number of leftist groups including, Asian Pacific Americans for Progress, Asian Americans for Obama, and she started the 121 Coalition.
Following up on this Instapundit post regarding Annabel Park and the silly Coffee Party deal, she began after leaving the New York Times at some point. It seems she led the grassroots effort for Webb, as well.
Annabel Park already has a group.
Annabel's video blog (youtube.com/9500liberty) documenting the immigration battle in northern Virginia is considered a breakthrough in new media activism. She is currently finishing a feature-length documentary version of the story. Annabel also produced youtube.com/UnitedForObama featuring the viral music video "Si Se Puede Cambiar"and created the grassroots campaign, Real Virginians for Webb, in support of Senator Jim Webb. In 2007, she coordinated the historic grassroots campaign for H.Res.121, the "comfort women" resolution, addressing the trafficking of girls into sexual slavery by the Japanese Army during WWII. She studied political theory at Oxford University as a Marshall Scholar.
Panelists will discuss and share analyses on the role of race both following President Obama's inauguration, and its impact on progressive thinking and communication.
The Netroots Nation: What, are they bored over there?
