The Black Conservative Summit 2014

Texas - State Rep. James White is hosting the First Annual Black Conservative Summit in Houston (Clear Lake) on Sept. 20 at the NASA Hilton Hotel starting at 8 a.m. Registration opens at 7 a.m. “The summit is a great opportunity for us to emphasize that the American Dream is still achievable though new skills are clearly needed to make it happen,” said Rep White.

“I invite pastors, community leaders, professionals, college students, existing candidates and future conservative candidates to attend this summit. If you believe in the benefits of living in a free society where public education is free and available to all, where the family is celebrated and our faith traditions are protected, and the free market creates good-paying job opportunities for each person, then you should attend this summit,” said Rep White.

 There will be two sessions. The morning session run from 8 a.m. to noon. Researchers from the Texas Public Policy Institute and Rice University will make presentation on the causes of poverty and the best ways to approach helping people lift themselves out of it. There will be examples of “best practices” from those ministering to the poor like "Mobile Loaves and Fishes," a ministry in Austin Texas. The afternoon session is devoted to the key elements of a successful campaign. Experts will present information on fund-raising, communications, media and messaging. The cost to attend is free, but seating is limited.

There are two ways to register: Online at or by phone at 888-993-7828.
