April 10, 2010

Barbara Ehrenreich, Gerry Hudson, Liz Shuler, and Harold Meyerson

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.

Participants Joseph A. McCartin (Kalmanovitz Initiative), Chris Hayes (THE NATION), Barbara Ehrenreich (author), Harold Meyerson (THE AMERICAN PROSPECT), Liz Shuler (AFL-CIO), Gerry Hudson (SEIU), and Michael Kazin (Georgetown University and DISSENT).

C-SPAN filmed the event, and it can be viewed in its entirety at this link.
