Videos and photographs from the “Women and the Spirit of the New Deal” conference are now posted on our YouTube channel and website. The event featured leading writers, scholars, public figures, and activists, highlighted by a talk by Professor Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor and author of Saving Capitalism. Reich was honored with the Intelligence and Courage Award presented by the Frances Perkins Center. The conference filled a significant gap in understanding the crucial role of women in building New Deal institutions and programs. The National New Deal Preservation Assocation gave awards to several Bay Area organizations embodying the spirit of the New Deal. You can find photos of participants here and videos of talks here.
