paid to attain that goal.  Are some racial or economic groups bearing
the cost of America's prosperity disproportionaltely?  Or are questions
of environmental justice an impediment to the redevelopment of urban
America, a process that is essential to protecting the health of our
environment?  Come join this diverse group of social, political and
moral leaders explore the issues that will help difine what type of
society we are to become.
