In talking about the New Deal, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt painted a picture of what economic security should look like in America: “Liberty requires opportunity to make a living—a living decent according to the standard of the time, a living which gives man not only enough to live by, but something to live for.”

Without this opportunity, he continued, “life was no longer free; liberty no longer real; men could no longer follow the pursuit of happiness.”

This special event will feature strategies for ensuring that all Americans have adequate resources to “live by” and “something to live for.”
