NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio will continue his recent national travels with a lecture at the University of California.

De Blasio's aides told The Associated Press on Friday that the mayor will appear on Thursday with former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich.

Reich is a professor at the University of California-Berkeley, which will host the event. The title of the talk is "Economic Inequality and the Future of Progressivism."

De Blasio, a first-term liberal Democrat, is increasing his national profile and has addressed that subject in several states in recent weeks.

He first made a trip to Nebraska and Iowa, and then to Wisconsin. The mayor also plans to give an address to Santa Clara University, where his daughter is a student.
