Be a Nuisance Where It Counts

Be a Nuisance Where It Counts
This summer, we’re working to fill a significant gap in the New Deal’s backstory—the role of women and their lasting impact on the social welfare of the nation. In collaboration with the Frances Perkins Center and the National New Deal Preservation Association we’ll be hosting “Women and the Spirit of the New Deal,” a conference at UC Berkeley on October 5 and 6. We’ve lined up a number of leading lights—authors, scholars, historians, activists, and political leaders—to share their knowledge and perspectives. We want everyone who’s interested to attend, regardless of ability to pay. If you can donate or become a co-sponsor, we would be grateful for your support.

As you’ll find in our Summer newsletter, the Living New Deal continues to inspire and support efforts to recognize and preserve the New Deal legacy. Thank you for making our work possible.
