While our communities have made many strides over the years, we know there remains a great deal of work to be done as we strive for social and economic equality. From police using excessive and deadly force on unarmed individuals to the ongoing concerns of unemployment, underemployment and education, our struggles continue. That is why this conference is so important.
This yearâ€™s themeâ€”â€œProject Lead: Growing Better Togetherâ€â€”stresses the need for us to reach back and bring others along as we climb to our highest heights.
