Event description

Description

Labor and progressives have successfully pushed the Democratic party away from the free trade agenda of Clinton, and Obama. How do progressives see this moment in political history, with respect to trade? What should the Democrats’ trade platform look like? Where can labor and business come together on trade? What is needed to address the other, larger threat to workers in America: automation? With the manufacturing sectors’ increasing reliance on overseas customers, how do we get trade right, without turning our backs on job-sustaining growth? How are progressives and labor approaching a Trump administration-led renegotiation of NAFTA?

Special Guest: Tom Perez, DNC Chair and Former Secretary of Labor
