The indefatiguible Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr., and his equally stalwart and creative team of researchers and professionals are rounding out 2015 with a 2-day conference inn Washington, DC, December 15 - 16.
With the upcoming 2016 Democratic National Convention scheduled to take place in Philadelphia July 24th through the 28th, there are plenty opportunities for African American entrepreneurs, technologically astute, professionals to become visibly and viably involved. But it won't happen over night, by magic, good will, or wishing. Those looking to see how they may be able to become involved in the technological explosion, or identify other future opportunities, this free 2-day event may well hold the answers and provide the contacts and conduits for making it happen.
And, quite frankly, I've yet to see a seminar, program, workshop or action that Rev. Jackson was involved in that didn't leave you more knowledgeable, empowered, informed than when you went in. He has the prescience to be ahead of the game on most issues that affect us individually and collectively. So don't miss out on this opportunity to be ahead of the game.
Even if you yourself are not part of the tech revolution, high school and college students, loved ones, associates, business partners, should be apprised of this and encouraged to take the time to be involved. DC is a short bus ride away from most of the major cities in the Northeast; or via Amtrak. Even shorter by car - the point being, this is an open door to an event that may have cost a great deal to be put together, but is being offered free of charge. The only thing you have to pay is ATTENTION, and then take action.
The press release and basic registration information is below. And if you do attend, please make it your business to go over to Rev. Jesse Jackson and personally say "THANK YOU" to him for always working in behalf of Black people.
Now that you know, what are you going to do about it?
Stay Blessed &
