3. Check the attached CASAE/ACEEA Program carefully and make sure that your name, institutional affiliation, and the title of your paper all are error free. I have already submitted the program to the Congress, however, minor changes to the program can be made until May 15th, before we print the final copy.
4. The Congress has informed me that they will not be able to provide audio-visual equipment for power point presentations, due to the prohibitive cost of renting the equipment. We will provide overhead projectors for all presenters who requested power point equipment.
5. When you arrive for the conference pick up your registration package from the Congress Registration Centre at the Clara Benson Building (BN) 320 Huron Street on the St. George Campus. (see map below) This building is not wheelchair accessible and we are working on alternative arrangements, should you need them. Please let us know.
The OISE/UT building site IS fully accessible from street-level entrances, although the subway system is not.
An online map of the University of Toronto, St. George St. Campus will be found at:
After you have registered, proceed to the Department of Adult Education, Community Development and Counselling Psychology (252 Bloor Street West, 7th Floor) which will be the home for CASAE/ACEEA participants. There is some street parking on streets adjacent to the building, but keep in mind there is a new ticketing system on Toronto streets. It will be found in a grey-coloured machine located somewhere along the block. It will take credit cards as well as cash. There is also parking directly in the building. This entrance is located at the back of the building on Prince Arthur Avenue, near Bedford Road.
6. In our panoramic South Lounge, you can pick up your final program, purchase your CASAE/ACEEA Conference Proceedings, brows through exciting literature tables, and much more. We will also serve you refreshments, hold special events (see below for the highlights) at this place and consider it as our central connecting point.

Minister Franklin Florence
Minister Florence founded and led the F.I.G.H.T (Freedom, Independence, God, Honor, Today) organization in Rochester, NY during the middle and late 60's. The F.I.G.H.T. organization grew out of an organizing effort of Saul Alinsky who was brought to Rochester by the World Council of Churches. This struggle resulted in the integration of Kodak and has provided almost 40 years of job opportunities for African-Americans that would not have existed without this effort. Minister Franklin Florence, featured in the film Saul Alinsky Goes to War.
A county legislator in Rochester and a doctoral student in Adult Education and Community Development Program at OISE/UT.
Following a viewing of the film, Saul Alinsky Goes to War, Minister Florence will discuss F.I.G.H.T.’s historic struggle. Then Minister Florence will be joined by Bill Benet to discuss their campaign to restore services at Rochester’s last inner-city hospital, closed in May of 2002.
