Accelerator Series for Executives with Pulitzer Prize Winner Hendrick Smith

About

April 2, 2015
4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


 
The Center for Nonprofit Management is the go-to resource for nonprofit leadership in Southern California. We inform, guide, motivate, and educate nonprofit executives and staff at all levels so each individual can evolve, adapt, and thrive as agents of change. The Accelerator Series takes a step out of day-to-day management and into finding solutions for big problems that impact the greater Southern California comunity. These forums bring attention to issues that can only be resolved when we come together as a sector.
 

For the first forum in the series, Pultizer Prize winner Hedrick Smith, author of Who Stole the American Dream will be joining us to talk about how to get America back on track and reclaim the Dream. Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Hedrick Smith says we must restore the middle – the middle class and the political middle. That means understanding how we lost the middle and became Two Americas, divided by money and power.

 

Drawing on his best-selling book, "Who Stole the American Dream?" Smith traces America’s shift from the shared prosperity and bipartisan politics of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, to today's hyper-wealth and democracy in peril. Our problems, Smith asserts, have roots in the long-term power shift in Washington and the rise of wedge economics. Today, we all pay price for political gridlock. No matter what the issue - growth and jobs, national debt, climate change, student debt, U.S. competitiveness or Social Security & Medicare  – we can’t resolve it until we fix our broken political system. That requires reform from the bottom up, grass roots civic action to roll back the corrupting grip of MoneyPolitics and gerrymandered gridlock.
