Presented by the Americans for Democratic Action Education Fund.

Please join us for a political roundtable featuring key leaders who will offer the progressive viewpoint on the important issues facing working families and the role those issues will play in the 2012 elections.

This expert roundtable will focus on jobs, health care, education, and other pressing issues facing our nation’s working families. Speakers will address how the 99% of Americans can win economic security and social justice in 2012 and beyond.
