Posted in Events News

On September 9, Jessica Champagne, the Deputy Director for Strategy and Field Operations for the Worker Rights Consortium led a conversation with Paul Adler, Assistant Professor of 20th Century U.S. and international histories at Colorado College, on Paul’s book, No Globalization without Representation: U.S. Activists and World Inequality.

The book delves into the history of a recent example of globally-minded activism: the struggle by U.S. progressives against neoliberalism globalization. Starting in the late 1970s with the boycott of Nestle and closing with the era of the Battle in Seattle, Adler details how U.S. public interest groups, unions, and others built coalitions domestically and internationally to struggle against multinational companies and global institutions like the World Trade Organization.
