Now that the summer is winding down, we’re kicking off another series of Strategic Dialogues. Join students, faith leaders, artists, media makers, community organizers and United Workers leaders in the next installment of this series. With unemployment and jobs on the tip of everyone’s tongues, we decided to take on this issue. Through a multi-media presentation and discussion, we’ll unpack the figures and the myths, examine how we got here and discuss the value of work with dignity. After taking on this heavy subject, we’ll reach back for lessons and inspiration from our own Maryland history to see how past leaders have organized to demand respect, dignity and end to exploitation: from unemployed sailors in Baltimore during the Great Depression to Abolitionist Movement that helped bring about an end to slavery.
The Strategic Dialogues are an opportunity to come together across many barriers to share food, culture, ideas, and energy. So join us once again for an exciting Strategic Dialogue!
