Eleventh Annual Barbara Jordan National Forum on Public Policy
The Lyndon B. Johnson School will host the Eleventh Annual Barbara Jordan National Forum on Public Policy April 5th – April 6rd, 2007.
Each year the University garners national attention for the quality of speakers and panelists that gather at the LBJ School of Public Affairs for this event, and this year will be no different. This Forum will honor the life and legacy of Texas Congresswoman Barbara Jordan. The theme for this year's Forum is "The Path to Social Change –Activating Your Community."
These two days will involve discussions and hands-on workshops on pressing national and international policy issues in terms of community organization and activism. Throughout her life, Barbara Jordan displayed a commitment to the political, economic, and social well-being of all people. Growing up in Houston's Fifth Ward, Jordan went on to serve as a lawyer, state senator, U.S. congresswoman, public speaker, and professor. Jordan's lifelong commitment to the U.S. Constitution was based in her belief that its concepts and principles enable America to provide prosperity for all.
