Current Projects

  • GET UP (Grassroots Economics Training for Understanding and Power) : A series of regional “train the trainer” schools and local workshops that will provide activists with the ability to articulate a critique of the prevailing neoliberal “common sense” (and resulting economic policies and pain) as well as alternative policies.

  • “The Other America is Our America”: A series of public educational projects and events in 2013-2014 that will build upon activities commemorating the 50th anniversary of the publication of Michael Harrington’s The Other America (2012) and utilize the anniversaries of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom (2013) and the War on Poverty (2014) to challenge poverty today, particularly among the working poor.
