Many voters are interested in participating in issue discussions that do not revolve around the ambitions of individual candidates.  This expert roundtable will focus on jobs, health care, education, and other pressing issues facing our nation’s working families.  Speakers will address how the 99% of Americans can win economic security and social justice in 2012 and beyond.
