Emergency Action to Protect Workers Amidst the Coronavirus Crisis
March 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
*The event is free to attend, but registration is required. FJE also requests that funders complete a pre-survey before the call.
As the world continues to face the massive public health and economic crises related to the coronavirus, funders are considering how best to respond in this moment particularly to support workers, their families, and vulnerable communities.
Join NFG’s Funders for a Just Economy (FJE), Economic Opportunity Funders, Early Childhood Funders Collaborative & Funders Together to End Homelessness to hear experts share their latest thinking on emergency actions and policies to support and impact these communities at the local, state and federal levels. Following their initial thoughts and reflections, we will open the discussion so participants can share their emergency responses to the coronavirus public health and economic crises, ask questions, and share strategies toward a coordinated and comprehensive response.
- Roxana Tynan of Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy (LAANE)
- Nadia Marin-Molina of National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON)
- Nafisah Ula of Jobs with Justice (JWJ)
This conversation will occur during FJE’s 2020 Policy Briefing, where funders will hear from speakers about how they are organizing and building power alongside workers in this shifting political landscape, including responses to public health and coronavirus.
