Help fight Inequality with UFE’s new “Pocket-Political Education” Resource
For 25 years, UFE has joined all those fighting against the growing wealth divide. That’s why we’re excited to announce our new resource, “Pocket Political Education”: a tool that can help anyone become a movement builder and leader in the fight against economic, racial, and gender inequality!
In the format of a simple deck of cards, this resource facilitates interactive dialogue by helping people connect the dots between economic, racial, and gender inequality. Decades of experience using popular education went into this. We hope the new tool inspires people across many movements to facilitate dialogue on race, gender, and the economy at their workplace or in their community. And with a stronger sense of the roots of inequality, we hope that even more people will take action to build a stronger movement for a fair economy.
How to Use the “Stacked Deck”:
Download the Trainer's Guide for detailed instructions. The Pocket Political Education tool is a portable deck of cards we’ve created for organizers, educators, and community members. Each individual card in the “Stacked Deck” contains a single activity. These activities address various topics such as the history of migration to the United States and the growing divide in wealth and income. One side of the card outlines the step-by-step instructions a facilitator needs to lead the activity. The other side of the card contains helpful notes and talking points the facilitator can use to contribute to the dialogue. These pocket-sized cards can be used singularly as educational tools on-the-spot or even used to design an entire two-hour workshop. The “Stacked Deck” resource is also adaptable and can be used in diverse spaces to help move people and groups to action.
