Uniting on the High Road A Conference on Economic Justice at the Local Level

Additional conference dates and times: Friday, June 21, 2024 at 9:00am to 6:30pm Saturday, June 22, 2024 at 9:00am to 12:30pm Bringing together activists and leaders working in local and national movements for racial and economic equality, climate justice, worker rights and power, and a strong democracy. In cities across the United States, everyday people are working to transform our democracy by strengthening their voices in local government, shaping an economy that works for all, and reimagining public safety and health. They are organizing locally to imagine and build a new future where people have good jobs, affordable housing, climate justice, and a real voice in the decisions that affect our lives. Join us in Buffalo for Uniting on the High Road, June 20-22, 2024, a conference bringing together leaders, advocates, researchers, and organizers from these broad movements for racial and economic justice and authentic democracy. The conference will include speakers from local and national organizations like PowerSwitch Action, Good Jobs First, ALIGN, Demos, Bargaining for the Common Good, Grassroots Collaborative of Chicago, New Yorkers United for Child Care, and local unions, universities, and partners in government. Come and take part in interactive workshops, field experiences in Buffalo neighborhoods, art performances, and collective artmaking as we learn from each other and imagine future collaboration within and across cities. The cost for this conference is $275.
