As we head toward the November mid-term election, the äóìTea Partyäó movement seems to have become the most prominent voice in opposition to the current administration and the media-grabbing antics of Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and others, threaten to derail civil discourse. What can progressives do to counteract this aggressive march towards the politics of fear? Join us as the New York Society for Ethical Culture Advocacy Forum presents Right Wing Populism and the Progressive Response with Jim Hightower, radio commentator, author and Americaäó»s #1 Populist; Melissa Harris-Lacewell, Professor of Politics and African American Studies at Princeton University; Juan Gonzalez, Co-Host of Democracy Now! and moderator Ari Melber of The Nation. Tickets are $5 for members; $10 for nonmembers and can be purchased online at www.populismforum.eventbrite.com. For more information call 212.874.5210×144.
