The Commonweal Story

During this 40th anniversary year for Commonweal, Commonweal co-founders Michael Lerner and Burr Heneman offer the first of a series of talks about Commonweal for The New School. During this first presentation, and in future presentations in the series to be held later in the year, Michael hopes to explore the following:

Sometimes a Great Notion: A history of Formative Ideas at Commonweal
Bending the Arc: Changemakers at Commonweal
Grace Under Pressure: Commonweal’s First Decade
Purpose: A Work Community in Service to Life

Michael says, “Looking backward is not easy for me because my focus is always on what we are doing and what we can do next. But it will be a pleasure to look back—and look forward—in the company of The New School community.”
