Reception and book signing to follow




We are delighted to invite you to the second annual David Dubinsky Labor Lecture at Roosevelt House, named in memory of the legendary American labor leader (1892-1982) who served for decades as president of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union (ILGWU)—and was a major political force from the New Deal era to the New Frontier. Roosevelt House is grateful to the Dubinsky Family, which has generously sponsored this series on David Dubinsky’s legacy—and the future of the labor movement in the U.S. 

Please join us as we welcome Steven Greenhouse, an award-winning journalist who served as labor and workplace correspondent for the New York Times. He will be discussing his new book, Beaten Down, Worked Up: The Past, and Future of American Labor, an in-depth look at working men and women in America, the challenges they face, and how they can be re-empowered. Joining him in conversation will be Lydia DePillis, a reporter in ProPublica’s Washington, D.C., newsroom. She covers trade and the economy in the lead-up to the 2020 election. 

We hope you will be able to participate in this special evening.
