CPIC 4th Annual International three (3) day Caribbean conference is schedule for April 16-18, 2007. This theme for this conference is “One Love”
This conference was made possible by Caribbean People International Collective, Inc. (CPIC) a non-profit organization established in Brooklyn, New York, registered in Washington DC, Virginia with an NGO in the Caribbean and its partnering organizations.
Ms. Dawn Stewart, Founder/CEO of CPIC, Inc in a recent interview stated her main reason for creating the CDOCH Conference. She stated, “We”, Caribbean immigrants, have a great deal to be proud of and much to celebrate for we have made enormous contributions to the United States and our birth countries. Since the early 1900’s we have migrated to the United States, we have pledged our very hearths to the ideals and principle to the democratic society we now call home. During this our inaugural conference we give emphasis to the importance of the Caribbean Moving into Action while we build on the past and focus on our future. It is imperative we remember that we stand on the shoulders of our past leaders, teachers and pioneers. Lets not forget their significant contributions to the United States of America, their legacy, our long rich history, our responsibility to exercise the right to vote, and lastly our moral obligation to assist in the struggle to move the Caribbean into action, with “One Love”.
The CDOCH Conference will be held at the historic Charles Sumner School Museum & Archives, which is located at 1201 17th Street, NW, Washington DC 20036.
The Capitol Hill Conference will bring together families, community leaders, policy makers, and practitioners from government and private organizations, both national and international.
