VP Biden set to appear at conference downtown
CINCINNATI (Adam Clements) -- Vice President Joe Biden is in town and he'll address what is expected to be a large crowd at the National Urban League Conference that begins at 9:30 Thursday morning.
It's not clear the topic of the vice president's speech, but he is expected to keep it consistent with the theme of this conference, jobs and the challenges of finding employment for the young African American in the United States.
Urban League President Marc Morial said, "The important thing is how the leadership of a community responds. Whether they bury their head in the sand, pretend that there's no problems, act in a defensive posture, or if they work to confront that problem."
Right now it's unclear where exactly they will be bringing VP Biden in, but there will be very heavy security in the area surrounding the Duke Energy Center.
