Town Hall #3: Freedom from Want
Moderators: Joeonna Bellorado-Samuels and Michelle Woo
Norman Rockwell’s 1943 painting series, Four Freedoms, portrays the Freedom from Want as an image of the normative, nuclear family gathered around a table enjoying a Thanksgiving meal. More than 50 years later, this picture seems so distanced from the reality of a majority of people living in our country. Unmet needs mount as the middle-class disintegrates and the working class and poor are pushed further to the margins. Dwindling resources feed the growing wants of few in the name of greed and “societal advancement”. The second Town Hall meeting will investigate these growing inequalities that are shaping the economic landscape at home and abroad.
