Held at the historic FDR Presidential Library & Museum, Rothstein shares his research on how FDR-era policy (and that that followed) played a role in continued inequality. A panel discussion follows with regional and national thought leaders Maurice Jones (LISC ), Lorraine Collins (Enterprise Community Partners) , Kt Tobin (SUNY New Paltz) with Q&A. A book signing and wine & cheese reception round out the evening.
