Saturday, April 21, 2018 from 9:30 AM to 3:00 PM (CDT)

Co-Sponsored by UUJEC and UCE

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.

Please share our flyer with your congregations



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

After a welcome by Evanston's minister Rev. Eileen Wiviott, join the panel of Advocates led by Ralph Martire of the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability and Alan Mills of the Uptown People’s Law Center to learn how to motivate volunteers.  Fred Tsao of the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights and Dr. Fannie Rushing of the Chicago SNCC History Project will add their perspectives on how to win on the issues.

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 funded in part by the Unitarian Universalist Funding Program and the Unitarian Church of Evanston and its Susan Walker Fund for social justice.
