Attend this event to have all of your questions answered about the future of Social Security, regardless of your age.

On February 20th, renowned economist and author Dean Baker will be speaking at a forum at the UW-Tacoma, addressing questions about the future of Social Security. He will talk about challenges and opportunities facing our Social Security system, and put fears to rest about its future.
