    A 21st-Century Economic Bill of Rights

    How do we reverse increasing income inequality in the United States? A 21st-Century Economic Bill of Rights would guarantee all people residing in the United States the right to the essentials of a good life, regardless of their income, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or country of origin. Join our guest speakers to learn more about this progressive proposal and what we can do to implement it.


    Confirmed speakers:

    • Harvey J. Kaye: American historian and sociologist. Author of several books, including “Thomas Paine and the Promise of America” and “The Fight for the Four Freedoms.” He is Professor Emeritus of Democracy & Justice Studies and the Director of the Center for History and Social Change at the University of Wisconsin–Green Bay.
    • Alan Minsky: Executive Director of the Progressive Democrats of America and a lifelong activist, who has worked as a progressive journalist, as Program Director at KPFK Los Angeles, and coordinator for Pacifica Radio’s national coverage of elections.

    A Saturday walk with Democrats Abroad through the beautiful vineyards and wine villages of the Lavaux region, from Lutry to Vevey. Justly designated a UNESCO world heritage site, the Lavaux is all steep south-facing vineyard-covered hillsides rising from Lac Leman, offering gorgeous views of the undulating countryside, the lake and facing Alps. We'll pass through centuries-old wine villages with their cafe terraces. This will be a 3.5-hour walk, approx 13km, plus an hour's picnic lunch pause. Those who want a shorter walk can stop at one of the eight train stations along the route. Wear layers and good walking shoes; we will not leave the paved roads. Rain date: Saturday March 11.

    Public transport: Train RE, S1, S2, S3 or S4 to Lutry, or bus 9 to Lutry-Rive.  Car: Paid parking at Lutry.
