RSVP early for special Crucial Conversation

Please join the staff of NC Policy Watch for a very special, Crucial Conversation luncheon:

Who Stole the American Dream? A conversation with legendary American journalist Hedrick Smith.

Hedrick Smith, Pulitzer Prize-winning former The New York Times reporter and editor and Emmy award-winning producer/correspondent, has established himself over the past 50 years as one of America’s most distinguished journalists.

His new book, Who Stole the American Dream, steps back from the partisan fever of the 2012 campaign to explain how we got to where we are today—how America moved from an era of middle class prosperity and power, effective bipartisanship and grass roots activism to today’s polarized gridlock, unequal democracy and an even more unequal economy that has unraveled the American Dream for millions of middle class families.

Don’t miss the chance to hear from this extraordinary American at this critical moment in our national political conversation.
