Heather McGhee: A New “We The People” For a Sustainable Future

Heather McGhee, Distinguished Senior Fellow at Demos, a public policy organization working for an America where we all have an equal say in our democracy and an equal chance in our economy, depicts how deep democracy is the only solution to the crises of inequality and climate change, and how the changing demos — people — of America can rise to meet this moment. A thought leader on the national stage, Heather, among her many accomplishments, helped shape key provisions of the now threatened Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

Introduction by Nina Simons, Bioneers Co-Founder.

This speech was given at the 2017 National Bioneers Conference.
