Panel To Discuss Civil Rights In The New Millennium At National Convention

How are civil rights being reframed to address a broader set of issues from health care and same-sex equality to immigrant rights and environment justice?  These and other issues will be discussed at the JACL National Convention during a Plenary Session titled "Reframing Civil Rights" to be held on Thursday, July 1 at the Swissotel Chicago at 9:30 am in the Vevey Room.
 
Nearly fifty years after the Civil Rights Movement, when laws were dramatically changed to protect minorities from discrimination in areas such as housing, employment and schooling, a distinguished panel will discuss the future direction of this movement, which began in the 1950s.  The discussion will be moderated by Paul Igasaki, a veteran civil rights advocate who currently serves as the Chair and Chief Judge of the Administrative Review Board at the U.S. Department of Labor.
 
The panelists will include Stuart Ishimaru, commissioner, U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission; Karen Narasaki, president and CEO of the Asian American Justice Center; Michael Lieberman, Washington Counsel of the Anti-Defamation League; Laura Washington, president of the Woods Fund of Chicago and former journalist who specialized in African American affairs, local politics, race and social justice; Teresa Nino, External Affairs Director, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
 
This is the 41st biennial convention of the JACL, the oldest and largest Asian American civil rights organization founded in 1929.  The convention theme, Embracing Change, recognizes the need for creativity and flexibility in adapting to new circumstances while remaining committed to values that promote social justice.

To take advantage of early registration rates, you must register by June 10.
