Event description

Description

We're organizing for the greater good. Come and share ideas and best practices with leaders in the fight for income equality, racial justice and immigrant rights.

Our keynote speaker will be author Chuck Collins who will discuss the pivotal role played by social and economic equality in building a more just society. Chuck Collins is the author of "Born on Third Base" and "99 to 1" which detail how government policy adds to US social imbalance and what we can do about it. He is the Senior Scholar at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, DC and has worked with William Gates Sr and others to increase social responsibility and support for the inheritance tax among the wealthy. His new book "Is Inequality in America Irreversible?" will be available this spring.

A panel of advocates will share what they've learned about how to encourage more folks to join the movement, how to inspire volunteers and how to work in coalitions. We are fortunate to have Alan Mills of the Uptown People's Law Center and Professor Fannie Rushing, Co-Chair of the Chicago Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) History Project join us for the discussion.

Over lunch we'll also have the chance to share ideas and learn from each other as we develop our own plans for the future.

This event is sponsored in part by the Unitarian Universalist Funding Program and the Unitarian Church of Evanston and its Susan Walker Fund for social justice. Our Conference webpage can be found here: http://uujec.com/Resistinequality.
