Sen. Al Franken will speak at Saturday’s Netroots Minnesota event — a day-long gathering of panels, seminars, training and cheerleading for progressives.

House Minority Leader Paul Thissen and State Sen. John Marty also will update the group on the Legislature, so far.

The event, at St. Paul’s Hilton Garden Inn, is sponsored by Alliance for a Better Minnesota and is “aimed at bringing together activists from around the state to learn, connect, and organize for future progressive battles in 2011 and beyond.”

Twenty sessions are scheduled.
