April Coalition Power Breakfast
Please join the COAL membership at our next Coalition Power Breakfast on Saturday, April 5, 2014, from 8:30am – 11:00am (program will begin @ 9:30am).
“Unfortunately, many Americans live on the outskirts of hope – some because of their poverty,
and some because of their color, and all too many because of both. Our task is to help replace their despair with opportunity. This administration today, here and now, declares unconditional war on poverty in America. I urge this Congress and all Americans to join with me in that effort.”
– President Lyndon B. Johnson, January 8, 1964
This is our focus for the April Coalition Breakfast. COAL is honored to host Dr. Scott Allard, Associate Professor in the School of Social Service Administration at the University of Chicago, as our guest speaker.
Dr. Allard will be joined by Mr, Malik Nevels, Executive Director – Illinois African American Coalition for Prevention, and Rev. Kevin Davenport, Institutional Organizing Director – Action Now, to provide additional insight and perspective in the issue area of Poverty. Join us this Saturday for a very informative Breakfast.Please forward this notice to your respective organization(s).
