Please mark your calendars for October 5-6, 2018. We are organizing a conference on “Women and the New Deal” to be held on the UC Berkeley campus that weekend. The conference will look at the contribution of women to the New Deal and the mobilization of women today to work for the public good in the spirit of the New Deal. Speakers include Kirsten Downey, Susan Quinn, Dyanna Taylor and Susan DeMasi, and Robert Reich will be honored by the Frances Perkins Center, our partner for this conference. The National New Deal Preservation Association, another partner organization, will also give out awards for public service.
