Al Sharpton’s National Action Network organization will host its annual convention April 9-12 in New York City. It’s slated to be big with tons of panels and President Obama delivering the convention’s keynote speech on the last day. But we can’t help but wonder: with all the conventions put on by civil rights organizations every year, are you interested in attending NAN’s?

NAN’s 2014 annual national convention is taking place April 9-12 in New York City at The Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers. The organization holds the event every April, not just to commemorate the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination, but to honor his legacy and “proactively engaging in dialogue that will spawn change.” Sessions at this year’s convention will address issues of civil rights and social justice including: gun control, education, health and wellness and economic justice. The convention is set to kick of with the “Keepers of the Dream Award Gala” where, again, President Obama will deliver the keynote remarks.

Check out the convention’s detailed program and register today. Let us know if you’ll be attending, and what you think in general about conventions like the National Action Network’s.
