Women and the Spirit of the New Deal, October 5-6, 2018

Although they contributed significantly to the social welfare of the nation, the women who guided the New Deal’s far-reaching programs are largely overlooked. This fall, the Living New Deal, in collaboration with the Frances Perkins Center and the National New Deal Preservation Association, will host a conference at UC Berkeley to recognize the women who shaped the New Deal and those carrying on the spirit of the New Deal today. Former U.S. Secretary of Labor, Professor Robert Reich will receive the Intelligence and Courage Award from the Perkins Center for his efforts to illuminate the causes of and answers to growing economic inequality.
