BORN ON THIRD BASE author, Chuck Collins, to be interviewed by Bernie Sanders
On Tuesday, October 3rd at 11:30 a.m. EST, check out Facebook.com/SenatorSanders for a special Facebook Live event with Senator Bernie Sanders and Chuck Collins, Institute for Policy Studies, author of Born on Third Base, co-editor of Inequality.org. In case you miss the live broadcast, you can watch the replay on the Facebook event page.
In Born on Third Base, inequality activist Chuck Collins advocates for the wealthy to “come home” by investing themselves and their wealth in struggling communities. Through powerful storytelling, Collins uses his perspective from both sides of the wealth divide to explore the roots of advantage, show how taxpayers subsidize the wealthy, and reveal how charity, used incorrectly, can actually reinforce extreme inequality. In the end, Collins’ national and local solutions build bridges between the 99% and the 1%, offering an unexpected and fresh take on one of our most intransigent problems.
