Brown Center for Civil Rights and Economic and Development, is proud to present its 17th Annual Symposium. This Symposium will foster a discussion about business social responsibility, government bailouts of big business and the mortgage foreclosure crisis. As a backdrop, the panels will also explore the economic inequities in the United States, and in New York City, that predated the recent economic crisis and have been exacerbated by the biggest economic collapse since the Great Depression. The goal of this Symposium is to learn lessons from what caused the market collapse and to determine how to repair the breaches in our economic system. NON PROFIT ORG U.S. POSTAGE PAID ST.
