Black Workers and Just Transition

Wednesday, June 24, 2020 - 8:00pm to 9:00pm

Join us as we explore history of Black workers in the United States during economic transitions. Hear perspectives from labor leaders on the impact of the pandemic, the unfolding economic crisis and climate change as well as the potential of the global uprising for Black to help shape a just, sustainable economic future for all workers and communities.

The webinar will include an interview with Jhacova Williams, economist for the Program on Race, Ethnicity and the Economy (PREE) of the Economic Policy Institute, and a roundtable discussion with Nia Winston, General Vice President of UNITE HERE and Tanya Wallace Gobern, Executive Director of the National Black Workers Center.

This is the second in a special series of monthly webinars on Just Transition and is a part of the Just Transition Listening Project which runs through 2020. The recording of our first webinar The Pandemic, the Economic Crisis and Just Transition can be found on the LNS website.
