Trade, Manufacturing & Jobs: How to Rebuild the Middle Class

Trade and manufacturing are dominating the 2016 presidential campaign. As Democrats gather in Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention, the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) is hosting a conversation at the Philadelphia Museum of Art about why these issues matter for our economy, our children's future and our politics today.

And you can climb the steps that Rocky made famous to get there.

Featuring keynote remarks by Gene Sperling, a key economic adviser to presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Sperling, a Michigan native, will highlight Clinton's policies on manufacturing, trade and rebuilding America.

Special guest Leo Gerard, president of the United Steelworkers, labor's leading voice on these issues, will kick off the conversation.

Other confirmed speakers include Mike Langford, president of the Utility Workers Union of America; Tom Conway, international vice president of the United Steelworkers; and award-winning pollster Mark Mellman.

The town hall conversation will be hosted by AAM President Scott Paul.
