A coalition that includes the state NAACP, N.C. Council of Churches, N.C. Conservation Network, SURGE (Students United for a Responsible Global Environment), NC WARN and N.C. Fair Share are behind the conference Saturday on the N.C. Central University campus. The subject: How to get from here (our gluttonous and wastefully oil-dependent culture) to there -- a healthy, "green" economy fueled by sustainable energy sources that don't pollute the environment and do create jobs here at home.

"Growing a Just, Green Economy" will feature keynoter Majora Carter, founder of Sustainable South Bronx and past winner of a MacArthur Foundation genius award. The day's speaker list is a who's who of community and environmental justice leaders. It's online at the conference website.

Registration starts at 8 am, Carter's at 9 am, the day ends at 4 pm. Registration is $30 ($10 with a student ID) and includes box lunches. However, if you're a walk-in registrant on Saturday, bring your own lunch 'cause they weren't counting you when they ordered.
