Reclaiming Prosperity: Inequality and the Future of Work

ReclaimingProsperity-e1366910971400Please join us at Town Hall Seattle on May 23rd at 7:30pm, for Reclaiming Prosperity: Inequality and the Future of Work, an important conversation with leading experts on the economy and the impacts of income inequality on our economic and civic life.

The event will feature Annette Bernhardt, Co-Policy Director of the National Employment Law Project; David Madland, Director of the American Worker Project at the Center for American Progress; and Dorian Warren, Professor of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University.  In a discussion moderated by University of Washington Sociology Professor Jake Rosenfeld, Madland, Bernhardt and Warren will discuss the current crisis of income inequality, the low-wage recovery and the future economic and financial prospects for working people.

Visit Town Hall Seattle to learn more and purchase tickets for the May 23rd event.  Tickets are $5.00.

Inequality and the Future of Work is the first event in a new, Town Hall-produced speaker series called Reclaiming Prosperity, which aims to incite critical conversations about how we can rebuild an economy that creates economic prosperity and rebuilds our region’s middle class.  Over the coming year, Reclaiming Prosperity will bring to Seattle nationally known economists, policy experts, and innovative activists who are working to address the root causes and long-term impacts of income inequality in the United States.

We hope you can join us at Town Hall on May 23rd for Inequality and the Future of Work!

 The series is presented by Town Hall Seattle, in partnership with Citizen University, True Patriot Network, The Washington Budget & Policy Center, The University of Washington School of Law, OneAmerica, Working Washington, SEIU Healthcare 775NW, Fuse Washington, The Progress Alliance of Washington and The Stranger.
