Adam Reich on Organizing Walmart Workers : Alt-Banking Speaker Series

June 8th, 2014. Please join us to welcome Adam Reich – a Robert Wood Johnson Health & Society Scholar and an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Columbia University. He is the author of three books, the most recent of which is “Selling Our Souls: The Commodification of Hospital Care in the United States,” forthcoming this summer from Princeton University Press. Reich is also the faculty director of a collaborative project this summer between Columbia’s INCITE and the OUR Walmart campaign, during which twenty students will be organizing and conducting oral history interviews alongside Walmart workers in five regions of the country.

Whenever we can, we schedule great presentations and discussions lead by guest speakers on topics related (and not so related) to our core financial areas of focus. The book club / guest speaker forum will meet from 2-3 pm on Sundays before the regular Alternative Banking meeting from 3-5 pm, in Room 409 of the International Affairs Building of Columbia University at Amsterdam and 118th.

You can see the entire updated schedule here: Alt-Banking Web Site
