Webinar Oct 5: Reversing Inequality with Chuck Collins

Sep 15 2017

UUJEC Advisory Board Member Chuck Collins, in Partnership with The Next System Project & The Institute For Policy Studies, released an impactful report “REVERSING INEQUALITY: Unleashing the Transformative Potential of an Equitable Economy.” The report is an excellent resource to understand the key drivers of inequality and concrete wisdom on how to collectively and legislatively move toward a more just economy.  

From the report: “The US economy’s deep systemic inequalities of income, wealth, power, and opportunity are part of global inequality trends, but US-style capitalism and public policy make these inequalities more acute. Their observable and felt harm to our civic and economic life is corroborated by research from many disciplines, suggesting that a move toward a more egalitarian society would certainly realign most aspects of economic and social life for the better. But inequality keeps moving in the wrong direction, toward more concentrated wealth and power. What is the pathway to real change?”

In partnership with UU’s for Social Justice, we are proud to have Chuck join us on Thursday, October 5th at 8pm EST for a webinar to discuss his report and its findings.  

Time: Thursday, October 5, 2017 8:00 pm Eastern Time (US and Canada)
