An earlier workshop on income inequality that was held last winter in Door County has produced a three-part series called “Focus on Fairness”. The organization is sponsoring three events at the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor later this month. Jim Black of Sister Bay, a member of Focus on Fairness, shares the details of the lecture coming October 16 called “Opening the Door on Economic Inequality”.
Focus on Fairness will have keynote speaker Chuck Collins on October 24, who was an heir to the Oscar Mayer fortune and gave his money away at the age of 26. The third event on Saturday, October 27th will be a forum for all the local and state office candidates to discuss fairness, wealth inequality and increasing economic opportunity for Door County. All programs listed below will begin at 7 pm and are free to the public
