Connie,

Growing Power was well represented at the conference.  They are helping
develop the U-FIT program on Chicago's south side, which was part of the
Friday tour I selected.  I met and talked with Will and Erika Allen (father,
daughter) and found that I wanted to know more about the program.
Apparently Growing Power started as a program for troubled youth in
Milwaukee.  Microenterprise is a part of their program, as well as youth
involvement.
