Inequality in America: A National Town Hall

At Congressional Auditorium - Capitol Visitor Center, Washington D.C. (DC), United States
On 19th March 2018 7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Description

We live in the richest country in the history of the world, but that reality means little because much of that wealth is controlled by a tiny handful of individuals while more than 40 million Americans live in poverty. The issue of wealth and income inequality is the great moral issue of our time, it is the great economic issue of our time, and it is the great political issue of our time.

On March 19th, Sen. Bernie Sanders, in partnership with The Guardian, NowThis, The Young Turks and Act.tv, will present a live town hall event on the rise of the oligarchy and the collapse of the American middle class. Sanders will speak with director Michael Moore, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, economist Darrick Hamilton and other guests about the 40-year decline of the middle class and possible solutions to the growing crisis of income and wealth inequality in America.

The event will be live streamed across the social media platforms of Sen. Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Michael Moore, The Guardian, NowThis, The Young Turks, Act.tv and Buzzfeed.
