How do we create a more inclusive and sustainable political economy that is better for people and the planet? How do we achieve a truly representative democracy?
Come join us for a conversation with Henry A.J. Ramos, author of Democracy and The Next American Economy: Where Properity Meets Justice. In addition to hearing from Ramos, we will be joined by a panel of discussants who will engage in a robust conversation for anyone interested in democracy, economic restoration and environmental sustainability.
- How political polarization, income and wealth disparity and public violence is threatening the essence and integrity of our democracy and economy
- Why current economic and social trends are unsustainable
- Case studies of organizations that have successfully created and administered programs that further equity in society, restore democratic practices, implement better urban and city planning and protect the environment
- How forward-looking leaders and grantmakers can work more closely to harmonize their efforts and co-invest in and scale emerging political and economic innovations that put people and the planet before privilege and profit
- Jared Bernstein, Economics Analyst, MSNBC and Senior Fellow, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
- Henry A.J. Ramos, Author, Democracy and The Next American Economy: Where Prosperity Meets Justice
