California Event: Barbara Ehrenreich, ‘The Impact of the Economy on the Working Class’

April 11, 2010 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

“When you enter the low-wage workplace — and many of the medium-wage workplaces as well — you check your civil liberties at the door, leave America and all it supposedly stands for behind, and learn to zip your lips for the duration of the shift.”
— Barbara Ehrenreich, in ‘Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting by in America.’

Jonathan Frieman and Moira Brennan invite you to their home for an intimate discussion with award-winning author Barbara Ehrenreich.

Also featuring:

  • John Cavanagh, Director, Institute for Policy Studies
  • IPS Newman Fellow Tope Folarin
  • IPS Fellow Saul Landau

This promises to be one of Marin County’s most thought-provoking gatherings of 2010. Don’t miss this chance to renew your hope for a progressive future!

RSVP here or contact Sena (202-787-5277) at the Institute for Policy Studies for more information.

Convened in collaboration with Progressive Perspectives.
