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.
