Friday, April 19, 2019


Monday, May 20th, 6pm at Taylor Books (226 Capitol St, Charleston)

Join author Les Leopold, executive director of the Labor Institute, for a discussion of his most recent book "Runaway Inequality":

What has made our economy less fair and left most of us less secure?

How does the US really compare with other developed countries?

What does economic inequality have to do with other critical issues, including education, criminal justice, racism, climate change, foreign trade and war?

What concrete steps can we take to begin building a fair and just society?
