The Center for Fair Housing in Mobile is holding the 2013 Regional Justice Leadership Summit.
You're invited to the summit on Thursday, April 25 from 8:00am- 5:00pm at the Holiday Inn Downtown on Government Street.
The Center for Fair Housing says, "We are bringing together community advocates, residents, elected officials, community activists, and members of the legal, housing, environmental justice, public health and policy communities from Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas to address today's relevant issues with practical solutions. Come, join us and let us work together. We have found that many of us are facing the same issues around community development, public health and environment, economic and housing justice. We have worked to bring you dynamic presenters who not only know the challenges, but are trailblazers in identifying solutions."
Here are some of the specific topics to be discussed at the summit:
-The Restore Act- what it is and why we should be involved in the process of determining where the fines BP will pay should go to benefit our communities.
-The Tar Sands project set for Mississippi and Alabama and potential environmental threats to humans, wildlife and the eco-system.
-How to use the Community Reinvestment Act to further community development.
-Advocating for persons with intellectual disabilities and fair housing protections.
