On Sept. 7 at 4 pm, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will present TED Talks on income inequality with a focus on “How We Got This Way.” There will be an open discussion following the presentation. Everyone is encouraged to attend and share thoughts and opinions on the causes of and solutions to income inequality.
The first show is a TED Talk by Lawrence Lessig titled “We the People, and the Republic We Must Reclaim.” This 18-minute talk outlines a government that works for the left and the right. The government envisioned by Lessig is dependent upon the people and not dependent on those who fund elections. Lessig is a Law Professor at Harvard and the former director of the Edmund J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard. This will be followed by a YouTube video titled “Race to the Bottom” by Robert B. Reich. This six-minute video looks at global corporate interests versus the common good. Reich, the Secretary of Labor under the Clinton administration, is a professor of public policy at the University of California and has written 14 books including the bestseller, After Shock.
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County is located at 10341 Highway 42, in north Ephraim. For more information call 920.854.7559.
