Origins of Inequality Training

Develop your own skills to argue against inequality through small group discussions and group development of an inequality rap. Training will provide a multimedia overview of the American economy and growth of the rampant inequality that plagues our society today. We will close with a short overview of low-wage justice movements in NYC.

Led by Steve Max, Training Director of the renowned Midwest Academy and a vice-chair of Democratic Socialists of America. Charles Kahn, Organizing Director of the Strong for All Coalition will lead a session focusing on inequality in New York.

Light breakfast and snack provided, but advanced sign up with your contact information is required.

You should attend this training if:

  • You want a better understanding of how the American economy functions
  • You want to improve your ability to make political & economic arguments about inequality.
  • You want to learn more about the low-wage justice movement in New York City.

This training is the first of two to be held in New York City this year. It is initiated by New York City DSA and co-sponsored by Citizen Action of NY and the Greater NY Labor & Religion Coalition. Co-sponsoring organizations are welcome.
