The Crisis in Our Democracy
You are invited:
Progressive Forum 2007
Orchard Suite. University Union. CSU –Sacramento
Oct.4, 2007. 9 Am – 4 Pm. Free
Join us for a dialogue on current issues facing the progressive movements and their allies in our region. The Progressive Forum seeks to bring together scholars, students, social justice and union activists, and policy makers to nurture a new kind of conversation from within the campus and the social movements. We seek to move beyond the overly fragmented movements each competing with each other to find ways to cooperate and support each other’s work. This forum aims to enhance personal and organizational ties between those engaged in ongoing workplace and community organizing efforts.

Themes for this year include:
Immigration, the War, the Democratic Party, Media and Democracy, Race and Ethnicity in Political Organizing, the Decline of Public Universities, the Crisis in K-12 Education, Working class life and culture, New Struggles for Feminism; the State of Our Unions, Collapsing Health Care System, Student Organizing and more.

Sponsors:
