L500 | May 21-24, 2015 |  "Race in Politics"

Leadership is not a title, it is an Action!
Either because of opportunity or necessity, someone takes charge and leads the way.
Effective leadership is a destination achieved through careful thought, consideration and action.

Invitation from the Chairman


Every major statistic proves the cruel truth: Race matters in this country. While the death of our young men is all too common, it seems that one killing each year serves as a focal point, where we place our rage, our sorrow and our horror about racism. How do you move from agony to action? Join the NAACP and other civil rights activists to have your voice heard at the NAACP 11th Annual Leadership 500 Summit May 21st through the 24th at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel in Orlando, Florida. Network with business professionals, community leaders, politicians, students and celebrities from across the country and participate in leadership development and training forums around education, health, civic engagement, criminal justice and economic empowerment. This year's theme is "Race in Politics." Bring your entire family to this informative and thought provoking conference. For more details and to register log onto L500.org.
