Report: A Runaway Inequality Workship in North Carolina

On Saturday, September 8 the Alliance for Economic Justice co-presented a Reversing Runaway Inequality workshop with the Cape Fear Group of the Sierra Club, the Communication Workers of America, and Cape Fear River Watch. This workshop was in solidarity with the Peoples Climate Movement’s “Rise for Climate, Jobs, and Justice” campaign. As such, we did an additional activity on the impact of RNI on the environment in addition to making Activity 8 focused on how to convert a local environmental issue (Gen-x in the water) into political action during the mid-terms. Here are some photos from the day.

Reversing Inequality Workshop Set for September 8 in Wilmington NC

Its no secret that the rich are getting richer while the rest of us are finding it harder to make ends meet. Why do the top one percent get all the breaks while others struggle to find a good job, live in fear of a major health crisis, and get buried under growing debt? Many of our country’s problems are getting worse because of one major issue: inequality. Our economic and political systems currently serve the wealthy, but is this inevitable?

We’ve Updated the Trainers Map

We’re putting together a database of Train the Trainer sessions held since Reversing Runaway Inequality started in 2015. What started out with just a few T4T events our first year has gained momentum. We’re now up to 486 people on our Trainers Map (there are two not shown in Hawaii), and more than 3,500 people having participated in a training. We’ll have a more precise number and more details when we finish the database. Who Wants To Be A Trainer? And Where Are They?
