Breakfast Forum: “What’s the Matter with New York?”
The Murphy Institute
25 West 43rd St., 18th floor
New York, NY
The CUNY Graduate School of Journalism and the Center for Urban Research at CUNY are co-sponsoring a labor breakfast forum entitled “What’s the Matter with New York?”
What’s the matter with New York? Despite the fact that nearly 25 percent of New York City’s workers are unionized, and a strong majority of voters are Democrats, the city’s labor movement has engaged in very little worker organizing, and when New York’s billionaire mayor ends his current term, the city will have completed two decades of Republican mayoralty. What explains this conundrum?
An outstanding group of speakers will examine this urgent and complicated question. They include Brad Lander, Chair of the City Council’s Progressive Caucus; Bertha Lewis, President of The Black Institute, former Chief Executive Officer of ACORN; John Mollenkopf, Distinguished Professor, Political Science and Sociology at CUNY’s Center for Urban Research; and Edward F. Ott, Distinguished Lecturer at the Murphy Institute and former Executive Director, NYC Central Labor Council.
The roundtable will be moderated by celebrated investigative reporter Tom Robbins, currently Investigative Journalist in Residence at CUNY’s School of Journalism.
This forum promises to tackle a set of issues crucial to poor and working-class communities and organized labor as they confront multiple demands to bear the weight of the fiscal crisis, and consider upcoming mayoral and city council elections.
