The Frances Perkins/Eleanor Roosevelt Legacy: In Progress or Peril?
Eleanor Roosevelt and Frances Perkins were leading voices for social and economic equality in the early to mid-20th century. Both women were influential in New York City and New York State politics and took much of what they learned to the national stage. They were leaders at the Women's City Club of New York, a century-old nonprofit and civic organization dedicated to shaping public policy to improve the lives of all New Yorkers.
The Perkins Roosevelt Symposium will examine current public policy discussions around Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, as well as the broader work of the U.S. Department of Labor on behalf of America's workforce..
