My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for United for a Fair Economy, Boston, MA, USA
I am an outgoing Board member and have been connected to the project in various ways since 1996. First as Education Director for the North Carolina Council of the American Postal Workers Union, then as Workers School Coordinator for the Black Workers for Justice and more recently as Outreach Coordinator for the Workers Rights Project at the North Carolina Justice Center. All of the collaborations have used popular education to highlight income and wealth inequality or problems of disparities with the tax system in states and in our country. As a popular educator I can't remember doing any workshops or facilitation that didn't include exercises or materials created by UFE. As recently as last month their research and materials were part of my workshop on Black Workers, Jobs and Climate Justice. The current focus on strengthening the work of low wage workers and people of color organizing is on time and represents an excellent grasp of what it is we need to facilitate meaningful and lasting change.
