Friday’s conference last week was a huge success, with over 200 faith, labor, and community allies attending our Working But Still Poor Conference. Our keynote speaker, Sister Simone Campbell, Executive Director of NETWORK and the woman behind the Nuns on the Bus tour, was fabulous and announced her upcoming tour on immigration reform! Congressman Tim Bishop spoke about the challenges ahead with moving immigration reform through Congress, and Rev. Charles Coverdale of the First Baptist Church of Riverhead got us started with a motivational opening sermon! Take a look at Bart Jones’ Newsday article about our conference online here, complete with video coverage of the event!
