On Thursday, May 2, 2024, at 7:00 pm, Natalie Foster, the co-founder of the Economic Security Project, will be in conversation with Anna Sale, the host of the acclaimed podcast "Death, Sex & Money," at an event hosted at Conn Ave in Washington, DC. This event promises to be a thought-provoking and engaging exploration of Foster's new book, "The Guarantee: Inside the Fight for America's Next Economy." The Guarantee asks us to imagine an America where essential services like housing, healthcare, education, and a basic income are not just aspirations, but guaranteed rights for all citizens. This vision may seem like a utopian dream, but as Foster's book reveals, the foundations for such a system already exist in the form of government-backed guarantees for the private sector. The event will delve into the compelling argument that if the government can bail out banks and protect businesses, it can and should do the same for the people. Natalie Foster, a leading architect of the movement to build an inclusive and resilient economy, has had a front-row seat to the dramatic changes in government policies over the past decade. From student debt relief to the expansion of the child tax credit, she has witnessed firsthand the potential for transformative change. Her book, "The Guarantee," offers a concrete and well-researched vision for a new American Guarantee, rooted in real-life experiences and collaborations with some of today's most influential activists and thinkers. The event will be introduced by Dorian T. Warren, the president of Community Change and a respected progressive scholar, organizer, and media personality. Warren's expertise and insights will set the stage for a captivating discussion between Foster and Sale, two dynamic and influential figures in their respective fields. This event is a must-attend for anyone interested in the future of the American economy, the role of government in ensuring the well-being of its citizens, and the ongoing efforts to create a more equitable and inclusive society. Whether you're a policymaker, an activist, or simply a concerned citizen, this event promises to challenge your assumptions and inspire you to imagine a better, more just, and more prosperous America.
