President, National Urban League 

The times have called for swift and organized action (see the National Urban League’s official response to the Trayvon Martin trial verdict here: http://iamempowered.com/node/116984) and the National Urban League has called an Emergency Town Hall at the 2013 National Urban League “Redeem the Dream” Conference.  The Town Hall, moderated by Melissa Harris-Perry, will feature an address from Attorney General Eric Holder and convene the community to tackle recent attacks on voting rights, affirmative action, civil rights and justice!

We will Redeem the Dream and commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington while charting the course for the present and future of civil rights and urban advocacy at Conference —- but your participation is needed!

There is still time to register for this important event, attend the Town Hall and hear from civil rights and urban advocacy leaders and influencers including:

Congressman John Conyers, Congressman John Lewis, Barbara Arnwine, Rev. Al Sharpton, Michael Eric Dyson, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr., Ryan Coogler  (director of major motion picture, Fruitvale Station), Melissa Harris-Perry and  more!

We look forward to seeing you in Philadelphia!
