Description

On this week’s Truth to Power, we gather folks around the microphones for a community conversation about the union organizing work of Jane McAlevey, whose work is the current subject of the DSA Louisville Night & Day Schools. Jane McAlevey is a union organizer, scholar, author, and political commentator, who has contributed to The New York Times, The Nation, Jacobin, and many others. In June 2019, University of California, Berkeley Labor Center announced the appointment of McAlevey as a Senior Policy Fellow. She's written three books about power and strategy and the essential role of workers and trade unions in reversing income inequality and building a stronger democracy: Raising Expectations and Raising Hell (Verso Books, 2012), No Shortcuts - Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age (Oxford University Press, 2016), and her third book, A Collective Bargain: Unions, Organizing, and the Fight for Democracy, published by Ecco Press in January 2020.

Joining hosts Justin Mog (Sustainability Now!) and Hart Hagan (The Climate Report / Let’s Talk) is Jake Bush from the Louisville DSA (Democratic Socialists of America). Get involved and learn more at https://www.dsalouisville.org/

On Truth to Power each week, we gather Forward Radio programmers and friends to discuss the state of the world, the nation, the state, and the city! It's a community conversation like you won't hear anywhere else!

Truth to Power airs every Sunday at 4pm, Monday at 2pm, and Tuesday at 9am on Louisville's grassroots, community radio station, Forward Radio 106.5fm WFMP and live streams at http://forwardradio.org
