The effects of policies and procedures on the state’s progressive agenda will be the focus of Progress NC 2006, a conference to be hosted by the North Carolina Justice Center October 19.
The conference will be held at the Friday Center for Continuing Education in Chapel Hill from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., followed by the center’s presentation of its Defenders of Justice awards.
Speakers and panelists will discuss barriers to progress erected by state budget priorities, environmental regulations, campaign-finance laws and challenges faced by minorities.
Robert Franklin, professor of social ethics at the Candler School of Theology at Emory University, will deliver the keynote address.
Patrick Bresette, associate program director of Public Works: the Demos Center for the Public Sector, will serve as the event’s national presenter.
