Tonight: Tune In for a National Teach-in to Take Back the American Dream

Tonight, the Campaign for America's future and the Big Picture with Thom Hartmann are uniting for a special national teach-in, an event that you can tune into online or on your TV. This teach-in all about "taking back the American dream." It features some dynamic speakers and a chance to take a second look at what really caused our financial crisis--and how to turn the economy around in a progressive direction.

From the teach-in's website, the event will feature:

Robert Reich, former U.S. Secretary of Labor
Heather McGhee, Demos
Leo Hindrey, businessman and “Patriotic Millionaire”
Natalie Foster, Co-Founder, Rebuild the Dream
Robert Borosage, Campaign for America’s Future


On the “National Teach-In to Take Back the American Dream” you’ll hear the real story about the economic crisis:

What corporations broke the law in their reckless pursuit of greed
What policies made it legal for banks to gamble with the stability of the global economy
Why so many millions were thrown out of their homes, or left to drown in underwater mortgages
Why our government won’t act to create jobs, even though the economists who saw the crisis coming know exactly what we need to do
