The Chican@/Latin@ Graduate Student Collective presents
"Economic Democracy and Alternative Futures"
with Tom Hayden, Activist
November 29, 2011
Humanities Gateway, Room 1030
About the talk:
After over fifty years of activism, politics and writing, Tom Hayden is still a leading voice for ending the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan, for erasing sweatshops, saving the environment, and reforming politics through a more participatory democracy. In the late 1970s he was a leading figure for the Campaign for Economic Democracy and wrote about the failures of the American corporate led economy and advocated for more democratic alternatives that would empower people and their communities. In light of the current economic crisis, rising unemployment and the extreme polarization of wealth in the U.S., his call for economic democracy rings more true than ever.
