Steering Committee Co-chairmen; Andrew Heiskell [A. Philip Randolph

November 15, 1967

Dear Friend:

You are cordially invited to attend a one-day planning
conference on mobilization of local coalitions to be
held in San Francisco at the Hilton Hotel on November
30, 1967.

This is the second of a series of three regional confer-
ences the Coalition is holding in response to requests from
local community leadership across the country for assistance
in organizing and programming local action counterparts to
the national Urban Coalition. Leadership delegations from
cities throughout the western part of the United States

are expected to attend and participate in this meeting.

While the major portion of the meeting will be devoted to
workshop sessions dealing with the organization and pro-
gramming of local coalition efforts, we will have brief
addresses from Mr. Bayard Rustin, Executive Director of

the A. Philip Randolph Institute, Mr. Kenneth Wright, Vice
President-Chief Economist of the Life Insurance Association
of America, who is directing the insurance industry's $l
billion urban program, the Honorable Jesse P. Unruh, Speaker
of the California Assembly, the Most Reverend Joseph McGucken,
Archbishop of San Francisco, and a representative of the New
Detroit Committee, that city's urban coalition. Mayors

John Shelley (San Francisco), Frank Curran (San Diego) and
Floyd Hyde (Fresno) are co-hosts for the session. On hand
to assist in the workshop sessions will be a number of
skilled resource persons. The one-day conference will com-
mence at 9:30 a.m. and the formal proceedings will be
adjourned no later than 5:00 p.m. The National Conference
of State Legislative Leaders will join us in sponsoring a
reception for those attending which will be held at the St.
Francis Hotel and will begin at 5:30 p.m.

National Coordinators: John Feild / Ron M. Linton
Telephone 293-7530

We would appreciate your notifying this office no later
than November 22, 1967 if you will be able to join us
in San Francisco. A reply card is enclosed for hotel
accomodations for the evening of November 29th (if you
desire other dates, please indicate). We can arrange
accomodations for you at a flat rate of $19.00 for a
Single room and $24 for a double room.

We expect to forward further details on the program in
the near future.
