A study in contrasting events this Thursday

Raleigh will play host to a pair of competing and very different luncheons dealing with public policy this Thursday.

We at NC Policy Watch will be hosting a Crucial Conversation with Kim Bobo, the founder and director of the national advocacy organization, Interfaith Worker Justice. Kim has been named one of Utne Reader‘s “50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World” and helped coin the phrase “wage theft” for employer practices that are robbing earned income from millions of Americans. Her book Wage Theft in America helped place the issue on the national radar.Click here for more information.

 Meanwhile, over at the Pope Civitas Institute, folks on the right will be hearing from the boss, himself, Art Pope. Pope has, to our knowledge, never been named anything by Utne Reader, written a book or been called a “visionary” by anyone with any horse sense, but he is clearly well along in a decades-old campaign to enhance the incomes of the state’s top 1%.

We hope you’ll show your support for alternative voices to Pope and the politicians and groups he funds by registering for and attending the Crucial Conversation. Hope to see you there!

    A fine example of fairness and objectivity of this nonprofit, I love how you follow the rules for a nonprofit.

    Although you are yet to point out one rule or law that they are breaking. I trust you go and post the same objections over at John Locke and Civitas. I won’t hold my breath.
