Progressive Forum 2008

Walnut Suite: University Union. CSU–Sacramento

Oct. 9 , 2008. 9 Am – 2 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.

Confirmed speakers: Bill Fletcher, author. Solidarity Divided: The Crisis in Organized Labor and a New Path Toward Social Justice.
David Bacon, author, Illegal People: How Globalization Creates Migration and Criminalizes Immigrants.
Renee Saucedo, Workers Centers.

Themes for this year include:
Immigration, the War, the Democratic Party, Media and Democracy, Race and Ethnicity in Political Organizing

Sponsors:
Bilingual/multicultural education. CSU-Sacramento, Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies, Democratic Socialists of America, Sacramento Progressive Alliance, Progressive Student Alliance, Labor Studies:
Ethnic Studies Department.
