Regardless of who becomes the Democratic Party candidate for President in 2016, organized labor is poised once again to spend millions of dollars on the Democratic candidate. What is labor shopping for? What is it likely to get for its political money? How will it determine whether or not its resources were wisely spent? Will the larger, diverse working-class find a distinct voice in a political environment dominated by big money?

 

Speakers:

Randi Weingarten, President, American Federation of Teachers
Larry Cohen, Making Progressive Politics Work; former President, Communications Workers of America
Juan Gonzalez, reporter for Daily News and co-host of Democracy Now!
Basil Smikle, Executive Director, New York State Democratic Party and Ph.D. candidate in the Politics & Education Program at EPSA

Moderated by Ed Ott, Distinguished Lecturer, The Murphy Institute
