    State of the Dream 2020 - Topic Announcement

    Every year, United for a Fair Economy publishes a “State of the Dream” report that looks at the state of racial economic inequality in the US. The report, written in honor of the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., has a different theme each year (view our past reports).

    We are excited to share that the 2020 State of the Dream report will be focused around the influences and intersections of gender and race in the fight for a fair economy!

    When Facilitating Silence Isn't Awkward, It's Essential

    It was the last day of a four-day Training of Trainers at United for a Fair Economy... most had spoken up during one activity or another, but there was one participant -an elder Latina- who had hardly spoken at all. Ok, I thought, no need to push.

    Really though, her silence made me nervous. Did she disapprove? Did she feel unsafe? I thought there might be something we were doing wrong or, at the very least, that we needed to adjust.

    80 Ways to Make Your Presentation More Effective

    There are so many ways to turn your "audience" into active participants. We know from experience that learners are more likely to understand, retain, and apply knowledge if they are engaging their heads, hearts, and hands.

    If we want people to take action in groups to end inequality we can't afford to use the same top-down learning methods over and over again. We want people to leave feeling that they have the solution and the means to implement it.

    Knowledge is Power: Understanding and Challenging Inhumane Immigration Policies

    In light of the Trump Administration’s continued attacks on immigrants’ rights, it is of the utmost importance for United for a Fair Economy (UFE) and other social justice organizations to stand in solidarity with immigrants in the US. As a supporter of living wages, wealth-building opportunities, and equal justice for all workers, UFE has a history of standing up for immigrants’ rights and is committed to securing equal rights for documented and undocumented workers alike. However, while UFE recognizes that immigrants are an integral part of the American economy, they are first and foremost our friends, family members, and the pillars of our communities who deserve fundamental rights and respect.  --We stand in solidarity with immigrant communities today and always.
