just finished serving at the CCDA national conference. it was a learning event. if you're looking to join a community of folks that are working to make a change in their communities on behalf of those that either can't or don't know how, these are some good folks doing some good stuff. i was glad just to be a part of it.
what i appreciated about the conference was that there were no 'rock stars.' all the headline speakers were walking around with everyone. it was pretty cool in that i got to say hi with folks anywhere at anytime. everyone was pretty accessible. they ate with everyone, spoke to everyone, and even shared the bathroom with everyone. pretty unique from a conference standpoint.
some folks that i got to share with were (i suggest you google them to see what they are up to)...
john perkins (civil rights leader)
wayne gordon (aka coach)
noel castellanos (immigration reformist)
larry acosta (urban youth workers institute)
