Social Welfare Action Alliance 2009 Conference: "Building the Unsettling Force: A National Conference to Abolish Poverty"

The Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign and The Social Welfare Action Alliance are sponsoring a conference, "Building the Unsettling Force: A National Conference to Abolish Poverty," July 16-19, 2009 in Louisville, KY at Spalding University.  From the organizers:

This conference is being organized to provide a forum for people to share ideas, inspire, and motivate each other. We will strive for collective actions based in sound analyses - actions that can be taken locally, regionally, and nationally when we leave this gathering. Abolish poverty in these times of increasing joblessness, homelessness, hunger, and unemployment? We say "yes" and turn to the wisdoms of Martin Luther King, who envisioned an organized "unsettling force" built across racial lines that would spark a "revolution of values" to reorganize our society.

The call for participation deadline is May 15, 2009.  

-Thanks to Rick Wilson for the heads up.  E.R. erosser@wcl.american.edu
