Imagining a World Without Runaway Inequality

San Antonio, Texas

Runaway inequality comes at a steep price. The money that enriches the few is extracted from all that we hold dear: our public life, our incomes, our health, our environment, and the education of children. What would the world look like if we were able to reverse this? How is your vision different from the world we live in today?

Make a map or drawing of what your community could be like in a world without runaway inequality and send a photo of it to info@runawayinequality.org . Even better, get together with a few friends and imagine that world together.

 

Fan Mail to a Runaway Inequality Trainer

The Communications Workers of America held a Runaway Inequality training session recently, and heard back from one trainee:

Hi Joe,

THANKS for such eye opening info!  It explains so much…
Some Democratic Senators like Chris Holleran addressed the very situation (in coded language like “uneven distribution of gains” referring to the spoils of the economy going to the haves, not the have nots) in last week’s Banking, Housing & Urban Development Hearing on Monetary Policy w/Janet Yellin. I can tell you more about that….
I’m definitely interested in taking the follow up class.
I hope these trainings will be given far & wide. I think the White Plains Greenburgh NAACP (Pres. Lena Anderson is interested in holding one and also the Unitarian congregation in White Plains (Rev. Meredith Garmon). The person to get to is Rev. Troy DeCohen – he is the President of the Westchester Interfaith Clergy Assn and also the head of a NYS black clergy organization – I bet he’d be interested in it too.
btw, do you have or could you put together a list of our think tanks?
Stay strong,
We’ll be posting information about upcoming training sessions here on the News page going forward.
