EJ 2007 Conference Judged a Complete Success

The wrap-up conference call among conference stakeholders and organizers included a post-conference evaluation. The consensus was that the conference was a complete success. In fact, in many categories the conference exceeded expectations. Although the electrons of the atom were praised, the nucleus of John Rosenthall and Melinda Downing were lauded for their success in the face of numerous challenges. This proton and neutron team kept the atom stable and functioning properly. The group almost broke out into 'Kum Ba Ya.' The back slapping was merited.

Discussion proceeded to plans for the 2008 conference. A permanent structure was announced to sponsor annual environmental justice conferences. This is refreshing news because a decade is too long to wait. Hopefully, there will be expanded cooperation for future success because the issue is vitally important to America.

This is a call for papers for a book, to which I am contributing editor:

Red, Black, Brown & Green: Ethnic People and the Move to Economic Self- Sufficiency

by MONICA DAVIS, editor

The only real power on this planet is green power. That is true on several levels: access to money and markets, and control over your own finances and food supply. Around the world, ethnic people and women in the 21st Century have many of the same problems as their ancestors: inadequate power to control their own agriculture, environment, community development, businesses and finances. Authors from around the world examine the effect of interplay between money, power and the move to self-sufficency on people of color.

Contributors in environmental justice, financial literacy, human rights, disaster mitigation, tribal justice, farming and food production economics are already on board.

Previously published work is acceptable as long as you own the copyright to said work. This is an excellent venue for highlighting your work in civil rights, human rights, environmental justice, economic literacy, urban design, and sustainable living.

Submissions must be made via email by April 30, 2007. Work is slated to be published on or before May 30, 2007.
