Town Hall on the unemployment crisis

  • This event has passed.

August 16, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Join us on August 16 for a Town Hall Forum on the unemployment crisis.

Unemployment is at Depression levels, and with the new surge in COVID-19 infections, joblessness may grow still worse. The important HEROES Act, if passed over GOP objections in the Senate, will relieve only the crisis’ most severe symptoms.

Meanwhile the Trump administration, when not declaring the country “pandemic free” and attempting to bully workers back to job sites, is stoking division and hatred with a vengeance by sending federal cops to places like Portland and Chicago in response to the Black Lives Matter movement and its just demands.

With the November election just around the corner, millions are wondering: what’s it going to take to make life liveable again?

These issues and more will be addressed at the upcoming Town Hall Forum on the Unemployment Crisis on Sunday, August 16, at 8:00 PM Eastern, 7:00 Central, and 5:00 Pacific.

The forum will feature conversations with Elise Bryant, President of the Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW); Kooper Caraway, President, Sioux City Central Labor Council; Brad Crowder, Austin Unemployed; Bill Fletcher, Executive Editor of globalafricanworker.com and former director of TransAfrica Forum; Joe Henry, President, Iowa League of Latin American Citizens; and Judith LeBlanc, Director, Native Organizers Alliance.

Click here to register. Unemployment is not going to disappear without concerted action from working-class people, both employed and jobless. Our country needs thoughtful creative ideas and militant action!

See you at the Town Hall!
