Economic recovery for all will be a big focus of the upcoming 39th annual convention of the Rainbow PUSH coalition.

The Reverend Jesse Jackson talked about the event at a luncheon Monday afternoon. He hopes that the convention will serve as a call to action to those who want to help in the fight to save jobs and homes.

The conference takes place June 12-16 at the Hyatt McCormick Place. It will feature an array of guest speakers including the president of the NAACP.
