Because Criminal Charges Don't Mesh Well With "Compassionate Conservatism"

The White House is starting up with a faux-progressive program, and UIUC's involved! (Text via MASSMAIL.)
On October 27th, Mrs. Laura Bush will convene the first-ever White House
Conference on Helping America's Youth. The Conference will promote public
awareness of the various problems facing at-risk youth in our Nation, and
it will bring together policymakers, research experts, foundations, faith-
based and volunteer organizations, educators, coaches, and parents to
share examples of what is already working to make a difference in the
lives of young Americans, and to generate new ideas that can be used
across the country.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) has been designated
as the State of Illinois host institution for this national conference.
This will present UIUC with a unique opportunity to bring together
faculty, students, and representatives of appropriate community groups and
other educational institutions to hear from panels of researchers and
practitioners to address issues such as:

Challenges Facing Our Youth
Research Bases Solutions to Our Challenges
Unveiling the Community Assessment Guide
Connecting with Family
Connecting with School
Connecting with Community

We welcome you to participate in this national dialogue on October 27,
2005. The conference will be available through simulcast at the Monsanto
Studio at the ACES Library (1101 South Goodwin, Urbana). The pre-program
begins at 9:00 a.m. and the concluding remarks will take place at 4:30
p.m. Please feel free to review the attached agenda for sessions that are
of interest to you. Background information on the initiative is available
at www.whitehouse.gov/firstlady/.

Please direct any questions or concerns to Gennifer Gilbert at
ggilbert@uiuc.edu or (217) 333-2353.
The mentioned attachment was apparently stripped from the email when it went out via MASSMAIL, but I'm sure the Provost's office would be more than happy to furnish a copy if requested. I won't go, since my suggestion of "Kick the GOP out of office first, 'cos they won't actually do anything about it," probably wouldn't be viewed as constructive.
