MEDIA ADVISORY, July 25 /Christian Newswire/ --
WHO: BOND (Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny) and The Heritage Foundation
WHAT: Our nation’s Gulf Coast Region continues to face serious and ongoing problems in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The “Moral Reconstruction: A Model for Urban Transformation Conference” is a Town Hall style-conference designed to focus on solutions to these vexing policy issues. Transformation of the human spirit, however, is a key ingredient, because the destruction of this spirit is at the heart of the great breakdown witnessed during and following in the wake of this natural disaster. The conference will seek to outline options and identify solutions that can serve as a model for rebuilding, not only the Gulf Coast, but also for transforming America’s inner cities and urban areas.
The panelists at the conference will include: Professor John H. McWhorter (Author of Winning the Race: Beyond the Crisis in Black America / Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute); Ward Connerly (Founder and Chairman of the American Civil Rights Institute); Patrick F. Fagan (William H. G. FitzGerald Research Fellow in Family and Cultural Issues, The Heritage Foundation); Kerr Johnson (President, Kerrent Electric and BOND Board member); Rev. Grant Storm (Minister and New Orleans Activist); and Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson (Moderator and Founder / President of BOND).
WHERE: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium, 214 Massachusetts Ave NE
WHEN: Wednesday, July 26, 2006, 1-4 p.m. EDT
