Progressive States at NCSL in Boston

If you are attending this year's NCSL conference in Boston (Aug. 5-9), we invite you to celebrate this year's many progressive legislative victories with Progressive States Network at a reception on Tuesday, August 7th at 6:30pm at the Westin Copley Place.

We are happy to sponsor this event with our partners the AFL-CIO, American Federation of Teachers (AFT), AFSCME, Center for American Progress Action Fund, Center for Policy Alternatives (CPA), International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), National Labor Caucus of State Legislatures, and the Teamsters (IBT).

We are also pleased to have Robert Kuttner, columnist for The Boston Globe and co-editor and co-founder of The American Prospect, deliver his perspective on the current state of the country and how states can bring about the reforms we need.  Bob Kuttner writes regularly for The American Prospect on political and economic issues, and he has just completed a book, to be published in 2007, on the connection between political and economic inequality and systemic risks facing the economy.
