Event Details

 

What

The Maryland-DC (MDC) chapter or WASH (Washington Area Secular Humanists) is hosting a free talk by Margaret Flowers & Kevin Zeese (co-directors of Its Our Economy) entitled: "Shifting Economic and Political Power to the People. ” 

 

 

We live in a time of tremendous wealth disparity. Bill Moyers calls our economy a Plutonomy. Wealth inequality creates an imbalance of political power such that public policy is designed to funnel wealth to a few while the many struggle to afford an education, a home and health care.
We will describe a 20 point strategy &  tactics to shift economic power, and thereby political power, to the people as part of movement to democratize the economy in the U.S. and around the world.

As time permits they may cover parts of their 20 point agenda to stabilizes the economy in the short term & turn things around from misguided policy to a more sustainable democratic economy. The outlined action evolved from a Prosperity Agenda (www.ProsperityAgenda.US) written in 2009 to provide for a democratized economy that combines policies that have proven to be effective along with innovative new solutions.

The meeting is open to all and all are welcome, but to accommodate the room and keep track  of who plans on coming you can register on this site to help our planning of refreshments and space.

Overview

Our purpose is to promote scientific literacy and critical thinking, to provide a forum for humanists and others to explore humanist principles and how they relate to all aspects of human experience, and to study the significance of humanism throughout history. Secular humanists (SH)are distinguished by an emphasis on scientific methods of knowing, separation of church and state, and a commitment to to the pursuit of humanist goals outside religious frameworks.


WASH has 9 chapters that are open to the public; Baltimore Secular Humanist, Frederick SH, Fredericksburg SH, Lynchburg Area Humanist, Maryland-DC Chapter, Northern VA Chapter, Richmond Area Free-Thinkers, and the Shenandoah SH. Our newest chapter is Secular Humanists of Roanoke (SHOR)
