Counting Change: Making a Difference in an Indifferent World
Will a job defeat poverty? How well could you live on a minimum wage?
In 1998, political activist and author of “Nickel and Dimed”, Barbara Ehrenreich set out as an undercover journalist to answer just those questions. The Leadership and Community-Service Learning Office and Voices of Social Change invites you to join Ms. Ehrenreich as she discusses the intersections of economic justice and women’s rights in today’s society, offering a fresh perspective on the progress that has been made and that still needs to be made. Learn about the riveting story that spurred a college student from the physics laboratories of Reed College to take positive action for worker’s rights at Yale, Miami, Charlottesville and Michigan.
