                    Since redefining equality under the law 50 years ago, the civil rights movement has evolved in dynamic ways. How do we continue to make good on its promise and address unfinished business in the coming decades? Our final conversation will profile innovative efforts already underway—from broadening the movement, to building across issue areas, to organizing in new ways—and explore how we can secure the next generation of change. What new horizons can we now see that could not have been imagined 50 years ago and what paths will we take into the future? Participants: "It's not about civil rights, it's about civil obligations. When we talk about rights, it distances and divides. Obligations bring us together," Sister Simone Campbell tells the audience of Courting Change during the last discussion of the day. From Moderator Laura Flanders, Host, "The Laura Flanders Show"; Michael Brune, Executive Director, Sierra Club; Sister Simone Campbell, Executive Director, NETWORK; Ai-jen Poo, Co-Director, Caring Across Generations; Rashad Robinson, Exectutive Director, ColorOfChange
