Working people can’t seem to get ahead. As we watch the news, engage in our communities, and organize around our respective issues, it becomes more and more apparent that we are operating in a rigged economy, which works for a privileged few. Wall Street’s power and influence continues to thwart progress on our most basic needs, on issues like public health, environmental protection, workers’ rights, and civil rights. The most fundamental component of our democracy, our ability to organize and successfully advocate for our needs, has been undermined.
Join us on February 3rd and 4th at the Rutgers Labor Education Center in New Brunswick(50 Labor Center Way) to learn how our economy, and our democracy have been strip-mined by financial institutions. This intensive training will be led by Les Leopold, author of Runaway Inequality and director of The Labor Institute. Join a discussion on direct actions that we can take to address the fundamental inequalities in our system. Space is limited to 20 participants.
