Five Term City Councilman and Author of "Citizen Cohn"

He was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. He has a bachelors degree from Yale University, a J.D. from the University of San Diego and a diploma from the Université d’Aix-Marseilles, France, where he was a Fulbright Scholar and met his wife Catherine. They have lived in Sacramento since 1979, raising two children. Cohn was an attorney for the California Energy Commission from 1979 to 1992, then served as Chief Assistant General Counsel for the Sacramento Municipal Utility District until he retired in 2011. In 2016, he published his first book “Citizen Cohn”. He is currently working on a novel due out in late 2017 or early 2018.

Book description:

Facing surgery to remove a brain tumor, Sacramento City Councilman Steve Cohn wrote this memoir chronicling his life’s story, from his grandfather’s daring escape from the Russian Army in Ukraine during WWI and Cohn’s childhood in mid-century Missouri, to his adult life in Northern California, where he raised a family and enjoyed a career as attorney for the nation’s most progressive electric utility and civic leader for “America’s Most Livable City.”

ANTHONY E. WRIGHT has served as Executive Director for Health Access, the statewide health care consumer advocacy coalition since 2002. Health Access has led state and national efforts to win consumer protections, fight budget cuts and invest in our safety-net, encourage prevention, and advance coverage expansions and comprehensive health reform. Wright led California’s coalition effort to help pass the Affordable Care Act and state laws to implement and improve it, and campaigns to successfully pass first-in-the-nation laws to ensure timely access to care, and to stop hospital overcharging of the uninsured.

As a consumer advocate and community organizer, Wright has been widely quoted in state and national media. He has also worked for New Jersey Citizen Action, the Center for Media Education, The Nation magazine, and in Vice President Gore's office in the White House.

Born and raised in the Bronx, Wright graduated from Amherst College magna cum laude in both English and Sociology. He lives in Davis with his wife Jessica, and his son Jefferson.

Grief

Although grief and loss are an inevitable part of life, we are often ill-equipped to handle them, especially when they affect the workplace. When a loss occurs, questions like these inevitably arise:

  • How do you support a friend or co-worker who's experienced the death of a loved one? What do you say ... and not say?
  • In the workplace, what can you do to help a grieving manager?  How can you ease a transition back to work after the loss of a family member?

Margo Fowkes of OnTarget Consulting and Tina Reynolds will speak about managing grief with a friend or especially in the workplace.  Learn how to create a compassionate culture that supports all employees through their worst times or even how to support your own family when there is a loss!

And, thanks to Elfrena Foord for this preview of Margo andTina's talk.
