Economic Justice is Social Justice?

November 12, 2023, 10:30am

Presenter: Sarah McBride

Service Description:

Franklin Roosevelt outlined a vision for a second Bill of Rights that established economic security as the foundation for a free society.

Eighty years later, with economic inequality and insecurity fueled by dramatic transformations in technology, it's become clear that the only path toward solving the crisis facing democracy is by guaranteeing freedom from want for people here at home and around the world.
