19th Annual Empowerment Congress

Please join LA County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas for his State of the 2nd District Address and Kamala Harris Attorney General, State of California on Saturday, January 15th at USC. 
Seating is limited.

Dear Friends,
On January 15, 2011, the Empowerment Congress will hold its 19th Annual Summit, under the theme “We Are the Second District: Empowered to Realize the Dream”. For nearly two decades, you have shown up to bring meaningful change to the Second District through tenacious advocacy, active involvement in the decision-making process and an unfailing belief in the strength of our community’s united voice.
At the 2010 Empowerment Congress Summit, we were inspired and challenged by Marian Wright Edelman, founder of the Children’s Defense Fund. This year, I am honored to announce that the Honorable Kamala Harris, Attorney General-elect of California, will be our keynote speaker. Attorney General-elect Harris’ historic victory in last month’s election signals a new direction for the state’s justice system and a major opportunity for empowerment as we continue to advocate for smarter and more equitable treatment of all members of our society.
Join me on Saturday, January 15, 2011 at the University of Southern California in Bovard Auditorium for the 19thAnnual Empowerment Congress Summit as we take steps to realize the dream.
Please review the attached flyer for complete event details. For more information on the program, including workshop options and descriptions, please call 213-346-3246.  Register now at www.empowermentcongress.com!
I look forward to working with you once again at this year’s Empowerment Congress Annual Summit.

Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas
