Prof. Harvey J. Kaye (Democracy and Justice Studies), author of The Fight for the Four Freedoms: What Made FDR and the Greatest Generation Truly Great, talked with Bill Moyer about how FDR’s speech was a rallying cry to build the kind of progressive society that Roosevelt hoped for but did not live to see at war’s end. His most recent book is FDR on Democracy: The Greatest Speeches and Writings of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
In his conversation with Bill Moyers, Kaye says the president was able to mobilize Americans who created “the strongest and most prosperous country in human history.” How did they do it? By working toward the Four Freedoms and making America “freer, more equal and more democratic.”
He believes Americans have not forgotten the Four Freedoms as goals, but have “forgotten what it takes to realize them, that we must defend, sustain and secure democracy by enhancing it. That’s what Roosevelt knew. That’s what Jefferson knew. And no one seems to remember that today. That’s what we have to remind people of.”

Career Services partnered with the Green Bay Area Public School (GBAPS) District to offer a virtual job fair for UW-Green Bay students and alumni. Eleven individual video chat rooms were made available for participation on Tuesday, May 19, 2020. Candidates participated in eight of the rooms assigned by certification area. There were 29 unique students and alumni who participated in a total of 36 scheduled chat sessions with over 20 representatives from GBAPS during a four-hour window of the virtual event. The virtual job fair was led by Career Services staff members Linda Peacock-Landrum and Karla Miller. They received technical support from Nichole LaGrow, Distance Education coordinator and outreach support to alumni from Kari Moody, director of Alumni Relations. This is what one participant had to say:
“With the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is influencing the traditional process of career fairs and interviews for Spring 2020 graduates (and possibly for future graduates to come). As a school and clinical mental health Social Work graduate, I found the virtual career fair with the Green Bay Area Public School District to be so influential and needed! To be able to put a face to my submitted applications and meet the future hiring team says a lot! It was a quick and easy process.”
