Dear National Civil Rights Conference Planning Committee and Conference Participants:
It is our pleasure to welcome you to the 11th National Conference on Civil Rights. The National Education and Empowerment Coalition, Inc., Miami University and the Southern University Law Center's Louis A. Berry Institute for Civil Rights & Justice are proud to co-sponsor the 11th Annual National Civil Rights Conference. The 2022 conference, held on the historic Southern University campus, will provide an opportunity to remember, reflect, and jumpstart the spirit, commitment, and courage that fueled a movement that changed the nation. During the pre-conference, June 19th, and the two-day conference, we can and should do nothing less than follow the example of history by engaging in workshops and panel discussions illuminating voter education, civic duties and citizenship responsibilities. We invite your presence and participation in activities focusing on civil rights, social justice and human dignity.
The two-day conference provides a wide range of topics related to the conference theme, Rise, Advocate, Educate and Cooperate: Fusing Power and People. The 2022 National Civil Rights Conference Planning Committee hopes you will take full advantage of the workshops, artistic productions, sessions, tours, vendors, and networking opportunities that will be available to conferees.
This conference, perhaps more than any other, provides a broad range of learning experiences in which to engage. More importantly, the 2022 conference promises to generate considerable intellectual dialogue and debate, as well as create opportunities to strengthen existing networks and forge new relationships.
Again, welcome to the 11th National Conference on Civil Rights. If we can be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to call on us.
