Workshop: Fighting Runaway Inequality

Friday, April 19, 2019

Sunday, May 19th, 2-4pm @ Temple Israel (2312 Kanawha Blvd E, Charleston)


The U.S. is an increasingly unequal society: the average CEO makes nearly 800 times more than the average worker, and the wealthiest 1% of households own 40% of the wealth. It is impossible to have a functioning democracy when so few people control so much wealth.

A free workshop with Les Leopold, director of the Labor Institute and author of "Runaway Inequality," to explore what inequality has to do with our current political situation and how people across the political spectrum can find common cause to fight for a fair economy.
