Jennifer Epps-Addison, “Building Communities of Power and Resistance in the Age of Trump”

Thursday, November 2nd
4:30 PM
Porter Hall 100
Carnegie Mellon University

One question we’ll be asking this year is this: what would Marx be doing if he were alive today? We’d like to think that he might be working alongside Jennifer Epps-Addison at the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD)—a high profile social justice organization focused on progressive policy-making and grassroots organizing. Epps-Addison, currently co-director of the CPD, came from her stint as the Chief Program Officer at the Liberty Hill Foundation, an LA-based social justice foundation that funds grassroots community organizing campaigns for social change. Prior to joining Liberty Hill, Epps-Addison helped coordinate the Fight for $15 campaign with Wisconsin Jobs Now. In 2012 Epps-Addison led a campaign to pass the Milwaukee Jobs Act, which created entry-level construction opportunities for unemployed city residents.
