FESTIVAL KEYNOTESaturday, May 4 | 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Enough Is Enough: Fighting Economic Injustice
- ASL Interpreted programming
- Current Affairs
Each year, the Festival Keynote presents a fearless writer you simply must hear, someone who brings insight on a topic that concerns us all. This year, that topic is economic injustice, and the writer is Anand Giridharadas, author of “Winners Take All: The Elite Charade of Changing the World.” We present him in conversation with two change makers: former Secretary of Labor and author Robert Reich (“The Common Good”), and impact investor and financial justice advocate Kat Taylor, who will lead the evening’s discussion. In “Winners Take All,” Giridharadas explores how elites rig the game and try to pull gilded wool over our eyes, and how these practices impoverish you, yours, and democratic government itself. The conversation will reveal the hypocrisies of the 1% and explain how the wealth gap grew. You’ll also hear about efforts underway to create the kind of deep systems change necessary to bring true prosperity to all.
Admission as with other Festival indoor events: $10 Priority Ticket to guarantee your seat, or General Admission Wristband access on first-come, first-served basis.
Presented by Beneficial State Bank, which provides economically and environmentally sustainable banking and promotes change in the financial industry
