All Societies Platform: Adler and Inequality, with Author and Labor Journalist Sam Pizzigati

October 29 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Ethical Culture founder Felix Adler established America’s first free kindergarten for working families in the late 19th century. In the early 20th century, he led the first successful national campaign against child labor and came very close to achieving his egalitarian vision. Recently, we have moved in the completely opposite direction with the widening of the wealth gap making inequality in this country too obvious for anyone to ignore. How can we best turn things around? As Adler put it, how can we tax away “pomp and pride and power”?

We are thrilled to have Sam Pizzigati, currently an Associate Fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies Associate and former Director of Publishing at the National Education Association, answer these questions as our special guest for this All Societies Platform. Sam will explore some of the fascinating new approaches to addressing inequality both here and abroad by demonstrating how the best way to chip away at this issue is to start locally.

On Zoom. Registration is required for this event. After filling out the form, you will receive the link to the platform.
