After the election, join us for the Nation Cruise from December 9-16. It will be full of powerful discussions on what the year ahead will look like for progressive causes, and strategize about peace and justice campaigns with us on the high seas.
We are especially delighted to welcome Joan Baez as our special musical guest on this year's Nation Cruise! Joan Baez is a musical force of nature – she marched on the front lines of the Civil Rights movement with Martin Luther King, brought the Free Speech Movement into the spotlight at Berkeley, took to the fields with Cesar Chavez, organized resistance to the war in Southeast Asia, then forty years later saluted the Dixie Chicks for their courage to protest war.
The best cabins are going fast so now is the time to book your trip!
Some of the other very special guests who will be joining us:
Jodie Evans & Medea Benjamin, founding co-directors of CODEPINK
Chris Hayes, Host of MSNBC's "Up with Chris"
John Nichols, Nation Washington correspondent
Gary Younge, Nation "Beneath the Radar" Columnist
Dave Zirin, The Nation's first sports columnist
Richard Kim, executive editor of TheNation.com
Frances Fox Piven, political scientist, activist and writer
...as well as yours truly, Katrina vanden Heuvel.
The idea? To exchange ideas on the state of the progressive world. To give all of us who know, care about, respect, support, CODEPINK and The Nation a chance to meet and talk, face-to-face, one-on-one. To enjoy a much needed vacation. Your shipmates will include provocative panelists and political portsiders (watch a short video made on our 2011 cruise), plus a daily array of stimulating seminars and enlivening discussions (watch a slideshow from our 2009 cruise). Don't take our word for it! Read Henry Alford's 2008 description in The New York Times here.
Certain cabin categories will sell out fast. You'll find everything you need to know at www.nationcruise.com. We look forward to seeing you on board in December!
