You are invited to join Georgetown University’s Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor for a virtual gathering:  “The Pandemic Worker Wave and a New Social Compact: A Public Forum on Working-Class Prosperity in a Transformed World,” June 2-3, 2022, to explore and amplify the intersection of a fresh wave of global worker activism and new social compacts. The gathering will bring together disparate allies including workers, activists, academics, faith leaders, policy experts, global labor activists, workers, philanthropists, labor organizations, environmentalists,  and young people.

We are in the midst of a period of working-class ferment, which holds the possibility of a global workers’ rights revival. How can new social compacts serve as viable platforms for the renewal of worker power and prosperity?
