Michael McCray, in his talk, outlines the failures of the justice system -- from the deaths of black men at the hands of police to numerous judicial failures (including his own experience attempting to sue the government in federal court for race discrimination and whistle blower retaliation).
A native Arkansan, Michael McCray traveled to Washington, D.C. with the Clinton Administration and began his community development career working on the Presidential Empowerment Initiative—also known as the Federal Empowerment Zones and Enterprise Communities (EZ/EC) Program. Michael served with distinction as a community development specialist and a National Speaker on community economic development and technology issues for the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Michael toured the country conducting technology training and speaking engagements at three White House Empowerment Zone Conferences and four Regional Enterprise Community Meetings. Michael blew the whistle on $40 Million worth of waste fraud and abuse at the USDA and became a nationally recognized whistleblower and public interest advocate. Michael hosts the Whistleblower Summit for Civil & Human Rights.
