Labor, the Left and the Obama Era

Posted in Events


On April 6, 2010, the Kalmanovitz Initiative, in conjunction with three of America’s most prominent journals of political analysis and opinion, Dissent, The Nation, and The American Prospect, hosted a discussion on “Labor, the Left, and Progressives in the Obama Era.”

A distinguished panel of commentators took part in the discussion: author Barbara Ehrenreich; Chris Hayes, Washington editor of The Nation; Harold Meyerson, Washington Post columnist and editor-at-large of The American Prospect; Liz Shuler, Secretary-Treasuer of the AFL-CIO; Gerry Hudson, Vice President of Service Employees International Union; and Michael Kazin, Georgetown University historian and co-editor of Dissent. The exchange of views among the panelists was lively and thoughtful.
