VIRTUAL CONVENING: Constructing a New Social Compact: A Public Forum on Empowering the Post-Pandemic Working Class
April 28 – May 1, 2021
Join us for a public, virtual gathering this Spring on building a new social compact for social, racial, and economic justice. Titled, “Constructing a New Social Compact: A Public Forum on Empowering the Post-Pandemic Working Class,” this multi-day gathering will bring together activists, academics, faith leaders, policy experts, global labor activists, workers, philanthropists, labor organizations, elected leaders and others to analyze, evaluate, and propose next-gen solutions for the intersectional issues affecting working people’s lives in a post-pandemic world. Meet our dynamic organizing committee here. Special thanks to the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) for their ongoing support for this project.
For forty years, workers and their allies have fought to hold their ground or to win incremental changes that would do little to address structural economic, racial and gender injustices. The next few years will be determinative ones. We call on activists, scholars, non-profits, policy organizations, allies, philanthropic organizations, elected leaders and others to join the dialogue on a new social compact and building a more just and inclusive world.
