D&S 45th-Anniversary Event

Dollars & Sense held its 45th-anniversary celebration on November 14th at the Nonprofit Center in Boston. About fifty former and current collective members and supporters gathered to hear short speeches by D&S co-founder and columnist and econ professor emeritus at UMass-Boston Arthur MacEwan, and Boston College sociology professor and former D&S collective member Juliet Schor. There was also food, drink, birthday cake, a timeline, and memories and celebrations of the magazine and the the economic justice organization that produces it.

You can find the text of Julie Schor’s speech at Triple Crisis blog, here.

The event was also a fundraiser; we are still accepting donations to support our work and make the organization financially sustainable for years to come.  You can donate online here.
