National Fairness Campaign Blog: The National Fairness Campaign Symposium in Cleveland, with dial-in instructions

This is just a reminder that this, the second such symposium of its kind, is kicking off right now in Cleveland. The dial-in number is 1-712-580-0100 code 290952#, and the dialogue will be on-going from 0915 to noon and then from 1 until 4. I'll be listening in all day and tending to business appointments in between. The last symposium, a few Saturdays ago, had some incredible content, the kind of stuff you won't hear from mainstream media or politicized nonprofits.

“Enforcement and Regulation”

A Retrospective & Best Practices Identification Symposium
To be held at the Unified Technologies Center at Cuyahoga Community College main campus on Friday 13th 2009, Cleveland, Ohio 9:00 AM - 4:00PM

The National Fairness Campaign will review past political agreements and governing compacts and their relationship to the social, economic development environment under an Obama Presidency. The National Fairness Campaign will also identify and address historic moral gaps.
Ohio is a focal point of the National Fairness Campaign because it is middle America, and has demonstrated past and current innovations to address fairness and capacity building, including state government minority business development programs, initiatives to increase the budget for the African American males commission, and the creation of the proposed 2009 American Reinvestment & Recovery Program and federal solutions.
