All people deserve the kind of economic security wealth provides, but numerous practices and policies have worked to limit the accumulation of wealth for women, and particularly women of color. Considering the historical barriers that block building wealth, individual actions and the "free market" will never be able to sufficiently address gender and racial wealth inequality. The only way to end this outrageous inequality is to attack the gendered and racialized rules that drive it.
State of the Dream 2020: Building a Fair Economy at the Intersections makes it abundantly clear that entrenched racism and sexism that is fostering and sustaining deep and yawning economic inequities in the U.S. This well-rounded report features research, stories, interviews and a practical resource through a popular education workshop exercise that helps us fight for a fair economy and ensures all of us can thrive.Read more

Our current economy and government is not set up to support the health and well-being of all people. This reality is starkly reflected in the disproportionate fallout from COVID-19, which while affecting us all, impacts some of us more than others because of systemic inequality and structural racism. However, if you have more than you need right now, we encourage you to join the #ShareMyCheck campaign and pledge to redistribute your checks in solidarity with those hit hardest.Read more
We at United for a Fair Economy recognize that we are in the midst of a disaster, a world-wide public health and economic crisis not witnessed in living memory.
Building a more fair economy capable of better responding to crises requires a more equitable allocation of resources to communities that have been historically disadvantaged or exploited. As we’ve seen with natural disasters in places like New Orleans and Puerto Rico, crises compound already existent inequalities, causing devastation for people of color in particular, while generating opportunities for a powerful few. Uplifting these marginalized voices is the best way to move forward and ensure lasting, economic change that benefits everyone, not just the wealthy.Read more

Richard Lindayen published When Facilitating Silence Isn't Awkward, It's Essential in Blog 2019-12-29 18:43:13 -0500
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.Read more

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. Then again, if you're reading this you probably knew that... [CONTINUE READING]
