Zeroing in on Skeptics with Jonathan Metzl: Why Early Childhood Advocates Must Upend Zero-Sum Perceptions of Government Solutions

The Alliance is excited to announce a special upcoming National Issues>State Action webinar, where we’ll hear from Jonathan Metzl, author of Dying of Whiteness: How the Politics of Racial Resentment is Killing America’s Heartland.

Metzl—a Tennessee physician and researcher—has done extensive research on voters who oppose health policies that would benefit them, and he’ll talk to us about the origins and nuances of that opposition.

We’ll hear about the role of “zero-sum” perceptions among many vocal opponents of government solutions, and we’ll talk about ways we might move to a political landscape that values cooperation over competition. 

A timely topic, for sure. Register early, to get a spot!
