In Philadelphia a progressive political conference "The Campaign for a New Tomorrow" was held. The Campaign for a New Tomorrow is a national independent social change movement led by people of color. In a keynote speech African American Academic and Activist Cornell West (Harvard University) call for politicians to focus on the issues of race and its link to economic injustice. West describes how in the recent presidential election there has been no discussion from either candidate on urban policy or the wealth gap. West blames this silence on the lack of political leadership; he claims this can be countered by building institutions such as The Campaign for a New Tomorrow. West says institutions like The Campaign for a New Tomorrow help provide a voice for black people and others who want to focus on the legacy of racial segregation. West also speaks of the increasing momentum of grassroots movements such as The Campaign for a New Tomorrow.
