The team at United for a Fair Economy is excited to present our new webinar series, “Voices for Fair Economy.” Through this series we will bring in powerful movement leaders from around the country to speak on critical topics in these rapidly changing times. By uplifting these voices, we are supporting an economy that works for everyone, not just the wealthy few. We hope you enjoy these recordings of our webinars.

"Education Justice is Essential"
COVID-19 has posed many challenges for students, teachers, and our education system. In this webinar, we discussed the history of education & racial inequality in the US, the impacts of COVID-19, and how equitable education connects with economic justice. Panelists include Merrie Najimy, President of the Massachusetts Teachers Association, Shira Cohen, teacher & member of the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers, and Letha Muhammad, Director of Education Justice Alliance.

"The War for the Truth"
In this webinar, we learn about the origins of modern propaganda and its evolution into today’s nightmare of disinformation wars based on big lies, big fears, endless enemies, and relentless hatred. Understanding this history is essential to re-establish the importance of truth, and to preserve and strengthen our democracy.
