Building Political Alliances Across Race and Class
Wednesday, May 11, 2022
Open to the Public
Free; Reservations Required
In a time when we often hear about the divisions fracturing American society, what bridges are being built to achieve a more fully functioning democracy and create economic gains for all? How can diverse coalitions across race and class, empowering different groups with common goals, bring about much needed change to our political system, institutions, and social policies?
Farah Stockman, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist of The New York Times and author of American Made: What Happens to People When Work Disappears, leads a discussion on these urgent questions, featuring: Dana Kuhnline, campaign manager for ReImagine Appalachia; Heather McGhee, distinguished lecturer at the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies and author of The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together; and Janelle Wong, professor of American studies at the University of Maryland and author of Immigrants, Evangelicals, and Politics in an Era of Demographic Change.
Presented with the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality.
A video of this event will be posted a few days later on our YouTube Channel.
