After taking a year off from hosting our annual Working But Still Poor Conference, we are back at it!
This conference is not only meant to act as a space where ideas and strategies can be shared, but also as a space where new ideas and strategies can be formed! Our conference title this year is “Organizing for Justice in Troubled Times,” and we are excited share the many insights from the ground with you all.
We are also excited to welcome the New York State Attorney General Letitia A. James, who will deliver the the closing remarks.
