A National Conference to Abolish Poverty - July 17-19 2009
Spalding University -- Louisville, Kentucky by the Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign (PPEHRC) and the Social Welfare Action Alliance (SWAA).

"There are millions of poor people in this country who have very little, or even nothing to lose. If they can be helped to take action together, they will do so with a freedom and a power that will be a new and UNSETTLING FORCE in our complacent national life." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., from "Trumpet of Conscience," 1967
