American Podium: Labor Day with Robert Reich & Pramila Jayapal
American Podium: Labor Day with Robert Reich & Pramila Jayapal

Former U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert Reich and Washington's 7th District Representative Pramila Jayapal discuss Reich's latest book "The Common Good" at Town Hall. They offer their perspective on the state of American politics and the labor movement, and unpack Reich's powerful case for the expansion of America's moral imagination. Reich and Jayapal talk about the moral obligations of citizenship and carefully consider how we relate to labor, honor, shame, patriotism, truth, and the meaning of leadership.

Presented by Town Hall Seattle as part of the 2019 Homecoming Festival.
