Director of the New York-based Labor Institute, Les Leopold’s previous work examined how Wall Street has revolutionized the economy, impacting the shop floor, the community and our natural world. Salon.com says: “Runaway Inequality doesn’t just explain where the U.S. economy went wrong; it also explains how American citizens can organize to get it back on track."
Copies of Runaway Inequality will be for sale at the event for $10. They are also available in paperback and Kindle editions at Amazon.com.

More information about Les Leopold's work is at http://www.runawayinequality.org.

Sponsored by the Social Action Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Redwood City.

From May 18 – 20, Les Leopold will also be appearing in Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Berkeley and Alameda. See link for info on other locations: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1xwAtMH0JjbuyXD8G4fvLptE0li4BxSZClxM_UHdNJ2U/edit?ts=590bd1ae
