The Fight for a Living Wage

Puffin is proud to present a special event:  The New New York Activists: Living City, Living Wage
Thursday, October 1 at 6:30 pm at the Museum of the City of New York.

New York's economic dynamism has long been a hallmark of the city; for centuries, jobs, and opportunity have attracted people to New York from across the nation and around the globe.  Yet today, many New Yorkers find themselves unemployed or working in unsafe conditions for unsustainably low wages.  At a moment of impassioned debate about the right to a "living wage," join us to hear from a diverse range of activists, scholars, journalists, and entrepreneurs who use organized labor, equitable business models, and the media to fight for a more livable and prosperous city -- for all New Yorkers. Reception to follow.

Kendall Fells is the organizing director of the Fight for $15 campaign, which is funded by the Services Employees International Union (SEIU).

Diana Furchtgott-Roth is Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and was chief economist of the U.S. Department of Labor between 2003 and 2005.

Sarah Maslin Nir is a staff reporter for The New York Times who published an influential two-part investigative series about workplace conditions in New York City nail salons in April, 2015.

Jessamyn Rodriguez is the Founder and CEO of Hot Bread Kitchen, a social enterprise bakery supporting low-income, immigrant, and minority entrepreneurs through on-the-job training and business development.

Dorian Warren is political analyst and MSNBC host.

Georgia Levenson Keohane (moderator) is Senior Fellow at New America and Director of the Program on Profits and Purpose.

 

This event is part of the Museum's Activist New York program series, made possible by the Puffin Foundation, co-presented with New America NYC, and co-sponsored by the Murphy Institute for Worker Education & Labor Studies at CUNY.

Museum of the City on New York, Wednesday, July 8 at 6:30 pm

Posters + Politics: The Art of Activism in New York

Political activists in New York, and in cities the world over, have a long tradition of using boldly-designed posters to draw attention to the most pressing political and cultural issues of the day. Despite their uniquely urban form and currency, the stories of New York’s political posters have seldom been told. Join a panel of leading artists for a discussion of three decades of political posters that address life in the city, from inequality in the art world and AIDS to housing and economic justice. This program is presented jointly in conjunction with the exhibitions Activist New York and Everything Is Design: The Work of Paul Rand at the City Museum, and How Posters Work at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.

Guerrilla Girls, Anonymous Group of Feminist Artists Avram Finkelstein, Artist and Founding Member of the Silence = Death Project and Gran Fury Kameelah Janan Rasheed, Conceptual Artist, Writer, and Educator Seth Tobocman, Comic Book Artist, Co-Founder of World War 3 Illustrated Caitlin Condell, Assistant Curator, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum

Reception to follow!

Co-presented by Cooper Hewitt and co-sponsored by New-York Historical Society, AIGA/NY, VOCAL-NY, ART 21, The Laundromat Project, the National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS, Inc., A.I.R. Gallery, The Illuminator, Justseeds, and The One Club. This event is presented as part of the Activist New York program series, made possible by The Puffin Foundation.
