In this video, Professor Guy Standing, author of The Precariat: The New Dangerous Class discusses the emergence of a growing precariat, a growing number of working people increasingly marginalized by, and alienated from, a socioeconomic system in which human labor has little or no meaningful place. Standing tells who these people are, what the dangerous class means and why it is of great consequence to all of us, because it includes us. Join us for this informative third part of our three-part video series. We look forward to engaging some critical discussion on this topic, so come ready and come with an open mind. The event will take place on the fourth floor. There is elevator access. Parking available behind the church, which is on the south end of Comerica Park.

Join us for a viewing of The Digital Disruption with discussion to follow. Peter Brown, a former machinist, demonstrates how labor-replacing automation has changed not only the workplace but the economy of the United States and the workers' role in it. Human labor is being replaced with digital production. In this new era of robotics, how can we create an economy which serves the people if technology has removed us from the workplace? Suggested donation is $5 or donate what you can.
