Overall, LPC (Legislative Policy Conference) was informative, engaging and enjoyable. I now have a better understanding of the work we do as an organization. Prior to attending LPC, I was conscious of the state of our communities, but hearing the metrics delivered in The State of Black America presentation further opened my eyes to the crisis we face in our communities.
The conference included various forums, meetings with Congressmen and their staff, hearing from Vice President Joseph Biden and various networking events.
I'd have to say the highlight was connecting with professional leaders and young professionals from around the country and spending more time, in an intimate setting, with our own leaders.
After attending LPC, I am even more empowered to do more in service. It is my hope that everyone has the opportunity to attend a National Urban League conference in the future. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
