On deck for the President’s Speaker Series: former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich, renowned human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson.
Along with George Will, the 2015–16 President’s Speaker Series spans quite the political spectrum under the theme “Frank discussions in a fractured world.” Human rights lawyer and 2008 Alexander Law Prize recipient Bryan Stevenson speaks on Jan. 14, 2016, on “American Injustice: Mercy, Humanity, and Making a Difference.”
Robert Reich is usually identified as former secretary of labor, under Bill Clinton. But since leaving public office nearly 20 years ago, he’s written and campaigned tirelessly to address the growing divide between the wealthiest Americans and others. His latest book, Saving Capitalism, explains how the United States can sustain growth that benefits all Americans. SCU hosts him on March 8, 2016.
