United for a Fair Economy has designed a very effective set of presentations and workshops called "The Growing Divide: Inequality and the Roots of Economic Insecurity." It has been adapted and refined over the course of more than 1,100 presentations to groups around the nation. The Workshop includes:

  • An opportunity to discuss the effects of gross inequality on our lives and the lives of the people we know and care about.
  • A discussion of the reasons for the shift.
  • An inspirational review of movements in the U.S. that have reversed previous trends toward inequality.
  • An opportunity to discuss strategy and meaningful action responses.
  • An opportunity to think about concrete steps that make sense for each of us.
