On Sunday, May 18, 2008 and Monday May 19th the Labor-Religion Coalition of New York State will be holding a dynamic statewide Conference: “Full Circle for Economic Justice”

Come and join a twenty-four hour immersion into social and economic justice! Sunday’s highlights will include a three-hour training on each of the following: fair trade, the anti- sweatshop movement, healthcare for all and immigration (including Maureen Casey and our Border Witness experiences!)

Sunday evening will feature, and honor, four groups of students who are doing amazing outreach/education in fair trade, farmworker justice, anti-sweatshop work and global solidarity.

On Monday, Patricia Smith, Commissioner of the New York State Department of Labor will be our keynote speaker.

Full Circle will include opportunities for networking, coalition-building and youth-empowerment. The trainings are in response to many requests we have had for “going the next step.”
