WEBCAST — National Urban League’s The State of Black America 2010 — JOBS: Responding to the Crisis Report
Each year The National Urban League holds a Legislative Policy Conference which provides an opportunity to raise awareness among the nation’s leaders and key influencers about the National Urban League, the work they do and the issues affecting the communities they serve.
This year’s centennial policy conference, a two-day summit in DC, will host Urban League leadership and members from around the country on Capital Hill and provide opportunities for them to meet with U.S. Senators and House Representatives.
The conference kicks off with the release of the National Urban League’s landmark annual publication, The State of Black America. This year’s theme is JOBS: Responding to the Crisis.
Confronting nationwide unemployment, the report outlines innovative steps that must be taken-including supporting small businesses and the emerging green economy, reforming education and expanding broadband access-to move this country and our urban communities forward toward full economic and social equity. The report presents the National Urban League’s plan for creating jobs and includes the 2010 Equality Index,™ which examines African-American and Latino progress in economics, education, health, civic engagement and social justice. Authors include Labor Secretary Hilda Solis and Education Secretary Arne Duncan.
There will be a live webcast of the discussion about The State of Black America on Wednesday, March 24th at 10:00 am ET. To view the webcast, click here.
A copy of the publication can also be purchased on the website.
