Social Security forum on Feb. 23 in Seattle

SEATTLE — From the Silent Generation to Baby Boomers, from Generation X to Millennials and Generation Z, all of us have a stake in understanding the real story about Social Security.

15Feb23-SocSec-forumAll are invited to a free public forum on Monday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m. to learn how expanding Social Security can help stop the collapse of the middle class, lessen the pressure squeezing families from all directions, and end the upward redistribution of wealth that has resulted in perilous levels of inequality. It will be at Joe Crump Hall, UFCW Local 21, 5030 1st Ave. S. in Seattle.

The forum will feature Nancy Altman and Eric Kingson (co-authors of the new book “Social Security Works!: Why Social Security Isn’t Going Broke and How Expanding It Will Help Us All”), together with City Councilmember Kshama Sawant and Washington State Labor Council President Jeff Johnson.

This event is sponsored by Social Security Works – WA and is endorsed by AFT Washington – Retirees, American Federation of Government Employees Local 3927, Economic Opportunity Institute, Puget Sound Advocates for Retirement Action (PSARA), Seattle NOW, Socialist Alternative, UFCW 21, Washington Community Action Network!, Washington Young Emerging Labor Leaders (WA YELL), Washington Alliance for Retired Americans, Washington State Labor Council AFL-CIO, Washington State Retired Public Employee Council, and the M. L. King County Labor Council.
