Insist on Justice! Resist Inequality! Conference April 21, 2018

Minimize

Unitarian Church of Evanston, Evanston, IL 60201

Saturday, April 21, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM (CDT)

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.

After a keynote speech delivered by author Chuck Collins on the pivotal role played by social and economic equality in building a more just society,  a panel of activists 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.  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.

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 . 

Alan Mills of the Uptown People's Law Center, will share his insight on the fight for the rights of prisoners, tenants, & disabled people in Illinois. Invited panelists also include Ralph Martire of the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability, and Fred Tsao of the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights.

Further details and registration will be available in February. If you have any questions, please contact the planning committee at events@uujec.com
