Invite you to a conversation on:
Reclaiming Our Democracy:
Money, Politics, and the fall of the Middle Class
With a keynote speech by Robert Reich
Not in decades has wealth in the United States been so highly concentrated in the hands of so few, and that dangerous dynamic is driving our politics and shaping our policies. The elites' vast political spending is buying access to power brokers and armies of lobbyists to push agendas that boost their bottom line, but that comes at a huge cost to the rest of us.
Please join Common Cause and Faith Advocates for Jobs and others in a discussion on the war on the middle class and how we can take back our democracy. This event is free.
