The Conference of Economic and Political Inequality

Friday, March 28, 2014

We know that Social Stimulus Do-Gooders, like yourself, are aware that we are all important pieces of a larger community.  Communities thrive when every voice has the opportunity to be heard, but there are many obstacles holding back voices that are vital and often go unheard.

This free and open to the public conference is an opportunity to expand our horizons and understand ways to break down the walls of economic and political inequality that stifle those voices which are integral to the health of our community.  Don't miss out!
