*The highly anticipated Family Summit and Conference will take place in Atlanta, Georgia., on August 25-27 at the Sheraton Atlanta. The three-day summit and conference will be centered on the theme, “Strong Families: The Foundation of a Great Nation” and will culminate on Sunday, Aug. 27, with a keynote address by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan.
Attendees of the Summit-Conference can look forward to workshops and presentations that employ the assets and strengths-based model as opposed to the traditional deficits framing and rehashing of the problems that we know already exist in our communities. The focus throughout will be on the application and implementation of real solutions that can be established in our local communities.
Topics will include: Wealth Building, Countering the Effects & Impact of the Civil/Criminal Justice Courts on our Families, Street Violence: Prevention Starts in the Home, and much more. Highlights will include an Interfaith Congregation (Jummah) prayer on Friday afternoon and dialogue on building unity among the Indigenous people during the Friday Banquet.
