This Thursday there will be a 1-day conference about income inequality in Seattle at Seattle University. The all-day event is free, but registration is required. More information and a list of speakers are available here.
From the Mayor's press release:
The Symposium is a critical component of the Mayor’s efforts to address a cornerstone priority of his opportunity agenda: a meaningful increase in the compensation for Seattle workers. There are three primary goals for the Symposium:
- Help inform ourselves of the rising income gap in our community and the complexities in addressing this issue,
- Establish Seattle as a national leader in developing strategies to address income inequality, and
- Serve as a model to catalyze a broader national movement to address the rising wealth gap in our country.
