Reviews

"In The Future We Need: Organizing for a Better Democracy in the 21st Century, Erica Smiley and Sarita Gupta deliver a transformative vision for the future of workers, along with innovative strategies to build an economy that works for everyone. This is essential reading for everyone turning toward state and local work after bouncing off the neoliberal ceiling of the Biden Administration and a divided Congress, and now reeling from the hard right majority Supreme Court and their spate of backward rulings."

-- "Social Policy"

"This book shows how to begin to think of conditions in society not simply as issues, but as systemically connected parts of a whole.... pick up Smiley and Gupta's book to spark new ideas and perspectives on what is possible--and needed--now for the working class."

-- "People's World"

"[The Future We Need] functions as an accessible device for individuals working within unjust labor complexes, and in examining the failings of the past, looks forward."

-- "WABE"
