Real Progressives to Host Green New Deal and Financing Event

Real Progressives to Host Green New Deal and Financing Event

 

Harrisburg, PA— Real Progressives will host a live event for Harrisburg residents to discuss the economic implications of the Green New Deal with federal spending information and local considerations for job growth, tax implications and actions that can be taken by individuals.

 

Leading economists around the world have long provided an answer to how funding for the comprehensive plan would be financed, but rarely is that information provided to citizens directly in a non-partisan, fact-based manner.

 

This event will take place on Saturday, October 19 at 10:00 am at the Unitarian Church of Harrisburg where Real Progressives founder and CEO, Steve Grumbine joins Professor Fadhel Kaboub, Ph.D., Associate Professor Economics at Denison University and President of the Global Institute for Sustainable Prosperity, with local activist and media personality, “Savage” Joy Mann, who will host the discussion with local community leaders focusing on the proposed legislation to address climate change and the potential benefits for the Harrisburg economy.

 

The Harrisburg seminar, the first of several planned around the country, will be streamed live and available for on-demand viewing for world-wide dissemination to a global audience across Real Progressives’ social media platforms on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
