Fwd: 4/13-15/02, NYC - Corp. Accountability Conference
Apologies for Cross-Postings
I went to this last year in Dallas, TX. It was a great experience! I
encourage all those interested in working with businesses to hold them
environmentally and socially accountable to attend. There are real skills
to be learned, and a great network of long-time activists in many diverse
fields to connect with.
