The Growing Economic Divide:   Which Side Are You On?
with    Steve Schnapp, Education Coordinator, United for a Fair Economy

Steve Schnapp has nearly 40 years experience as a community-based organizer, educator, and activist in New York City and the Greater Boston areas.

United for a Fair Economy designs and leads "popular education" workshops on economic justice issues across the U.S. and Canada.

Many people feel stressed by the current economic climate in America - high unemployment, housing foreclosures, rising cost of health care, and cutbacks in public services. Our program uses role play and a number of "popular education" techniques to explore the roots and consequences of the economic divide in America and how we can be engaged in promoting greater economic equality.


Lunch is included. (Suggested donation: $5, Students and Unemployed: whatever you can afford)

Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Please pre-register: on-line or by phone: 610-433-6421.

For further information, contact the LCCC office at 610-433-6421; or Bob Walden at ja-msc@ppjr.org.
