NAACP, National Baptist Convention to host Empowerment Conference
The NAACP and the National Baptist Convention are joining together to co-sponsor the Faith, Family and Community Empowerment Conference, which will take place from November 10-12, 2011 in St. Louis, MO.
This year's conference marks the first time the two organizations have co-sponsored the event, a move necessitated by the political, social and economic forecast for 2011 and beyond, and the need for the NAACP and the African American faith community to collectively revisit their historical roots and journeys.
In addition to exploring the faith connection between the African American church and the NAACP, several workshops will address the egregious economic, educational, incarceration and social realities of people of color. Conference keynote speakers include NAACP Chairman Roslyn M. Brock, NAACP President & CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous, and NAACP Vice President of Stakeholder Relations Rev. Nelson Rivers III. Additionally, NAACP Director of Religious Affairs Rev. Dr. Julius C. Hope will be recognized at the Life Legacy Luncheon as a "Difference Making Person of Faith".
The 2011 Faith, Family and Community Empowerment Conference will be held at:
Millenium Hotel St. Louis
200 South 4th Street
St. Louis, MO
