Sharpton To Host 20th Convention

NEW YORK - Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action Network will host its 20th Anniversary annual national convention from April 6 - 9, 2011 at the Sheraton New York Hotel and Towers in New York City. The four-day event will convene hundreds of delegates and prominent leaders in civil rights, business, politics, labor, entertainment and the religious community from around the country to address key issues impacting people of color.

The convention will close with a televised symposium entitled: Measuring the Movement: Black Leadership's 12-Month Action Plan featuring Black leaders of constituencies across the country who will for the second year assess where we are and what they and their respective organizations will pledge to do over a 12-month time-frame to further critical issues impacting people of color including, but not limited to, education reform, unemployment, health care and more. The collective will discuss the real problems and how we will not only hold the President and Administration of the United States accountable, but how we will hold ourselves accountable and tangibly measure our movement over a 12-month period to enact change.
