Dear National Civil Rights Conference Planning Committee and Conference Participants:
It is our pleasure to welcome you to the 9th Annual National Conference on Civil Rights. The National Education and Empowerment Coalition, Inc. and the Cities of Meridian and Philadelphia (MS) are proud to sponsor this informative and exciting conference and we appreciate your presence and participation in activities focusing on civil rights, social justice, and human dignity.
The two day conference will provide you with a broad range of superb topics related to the conference theme, Rise, Advocate, Educate, and Cooperate: Political Participation and Silver Rights. We hope you will take full advantage of the workshops, artistic productions, sessions, tours, vendors and networking opportunities that will be available.
This conference, perhaps more than any other conference, provides a broad range of learning experiences for you to engage in. More importantly, this conference promises to generate considerable intellectual dialogue and debate, as well as create opportunities to strengthen existing networks and forge new ones.
Again, welcome to the 9th Annual Civil Rights Conference. If we can be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to call onus.
Percy Bland, Mayor James A. Young, Mayor
