Liberal groups to huddle this week in D.C.

Liberal activists will gather this week at Washington, D.C.'s Omni Shoreham hotel this week for a conference to organize support for key Obama administration initiatives.

The "America's Future Now" conference (formerly the "Take Back America" conference) will play host to administration members, lawmakers, union leaders, and others to discuss healthcare reform, energy and environmental legislation, and the economic recovery -- among other issues.

Leaders of groups will join forces Monday to also announce their plans to push for the healthcare reform package in Congress. There will also be a straw poll for the first time to see where participants stand on a variety of issues.

The conference is organized by Campaign for America's Future.
