Let Justice Roll
It’s inspiring to know that nearly 400 Alabamians are willing to brave icy winds to spend a day envisioning a fairer Alabama! On Feb. 15, 2007, the second Poverty & Policy Conference filled Birmingham-Southern’s Norton Campus Center with civic and church leaders, community advocates, educators, students, social workers and other hardy souls from around the state. This year’s conference theme, “Let Justice Roll,” echoed throughout the day in keynote addresses by Chief Justice Sue Bell Cobb, Anniston Star editor Bob Davis, and Birmingham Civil Rights Institute co-founded Odessa Woolfolk. Three breakout sessions offered a total of 24 workshops on topics ranging from Medicaid reform to affordable housing to environmental justice.
