ADVISORY: The Power of Progress

September 10, 2008, 12:00pm – 1:00pm

Featured Speaker: John Podesta, Author, The Power of Progress; President and Chief Executive Officer, Center for American Progress Action Fund

Moderated by: Andy Stern, President, Service Employees International Union

In his new book, The Power of Progress, John Podesta—former chief of staff for President Bill Clinton—along with his colleague, John Halpin, explains how progressive values changed America in the wake of the Gilded Age and how these values can shape policy to work for the American people. Tapping the spirit of great progressive leaders from Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt to Martin Luther King Jr., The Power of Progress provides the road map toward a government responsive to the needs of its citizens and focused on our generation’s greatest challenges: combating global warming, growing our economy and expanding the middle class, and meeting America’s 21st century security challenges.

Copies of The Power of Progress will be available for purchase at the event.

A light lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m.
