In just three years, the Williams Institute conference has established a unique place in Dallas. No other event draws the same potent mix of policymakers, scholars, community builders and engaged citizens, all dedicated to the betterment of our city and region. No other event will add as much to your store of knowledge, contacts, and hope for the future of our communities. Plus, with the election just weeks away and the nation's financial system in disarray, we've invited representatives of the presidential campaigns to answer your questions about what an Obama or McCain presidency would mean for federal policies affecting you and all North Texas residents.
The Institute doesn't pretend to have all the answers. Our mission is to gather together the people whose collective wisdom can bring hope and wholeness to distressed communities. In that spirit, each 2008 conference breakout session will be presented by a "content partner," an organization in the vanguard of effective community building.
