A Better Tomorrow

Join NDN for a dynamic series of presentations and discussions from some of America’s most interesting thought-leaders about how to best tackle some of our toughest challenges.  U.S. Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA), author of the Global Poverty Act, will offer some thoughts on how to help conquer global poverty; Robert Hormats, Vice Chairman of Goldman Sachs, will talk about strengthening America’s much-neglected infrastructure; Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood, will talk about the pivotal role women will play in the election this year; Rey Ramsey, CEO of One Economy, will look at how to close the digital divide; San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom will offer his insights on how to tackle some of our toughest challenges, all from a very California perspective; and journalists/commentators Arianna Huffington and Jonathan Alter will reflect on this extraordinary political year, and take a spirited look at where American politics is headed. Moderating and guiding us through this compelling luncheon event will be Dr. Rob Shapiro, Chairman of NDN’s Globalization Initiative, and Michael Moynihan, Director of NDN's Green Project.

Thursday, August 28, 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

The Dawn of a New Politics

Join me for a lively and data-filled presentation about where American politics is heading in the 21st century. This engaging presentation, seen by many progressive leaders and groups across the country, takes an in-depth look at the big changes in media, technology, demography, race and governing agenda which are making the politics of the 21st century very different from the one just past.
