Join a panel of advocates at the conference Insist on Justice! Resist Inequality! who will share ideas to:

- Develop coalition that can win on the issues
Our keynote speaker will be author Chuck Collins who will discuss the pivotal role played by social and economic equality in building a more just society. Chuck Collins is the author of “Born on Third Base” and “99 to 1” which detail how government policy adds to US social imbalance and what we can do about it. He is the Senior Scholar at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington, DC and has worked with William Gates Sr and others to increase social responsibility and support for the inheritance tax among the wealthy. His new book “Is Inequality in America Irreversible?” will be available this spring.
After a welcome by Evanston’s minister Rev. Eileen Wiviott, join the panel of Advocates led by Ralph Martire of the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability and Alan Mills of the Uptown People’s Law Center to learn how to motivate volunteers. Fred Tsao of the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights and Dr. Fannie Rushing of the Chicago SNCC History Project will add their perspectives on how to win on the issues.
Admission is $15, and includes lunch. Come share ideas and learn from each other and the experts how to end inequality.
