There has been a lot in the news lately about economic inequality. Last year, former U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert Reich started a national conversation on income disparity through his groundbreaking documentary Inequality for All.

Even though economic inequality is a complex, institutional crisis, local action – from early education to living wages – can play a vital role in addressing it. Come find out how!

Join us for a lively forum on economic inequality and the fight for working families.
