EARNCon is headed to “The Big Easy” in 2024!

We are thrilled to host EARNCon in New Orleans this year from September 11 – 13, 2024. New Orleans has a rich history, one that is inextricably tied to racial, economic, and social justice movements. For example, on November 8, 1892, 30,000 factory and dock workers in New Orleans called for a general strike to demand a union. These workers were later joined by musicians, clothing workers, clerks, utility workers, streetcar drivers, and printers. Importantly, Black and white workers came together to demand a union, pushing back against efforts to divide workers by race. The success of these workers remains an inspiration for broad-based, multi-racial organizing in the South as we see organized labor and their allies, including EARN groups, continue to make inroads today.

As we prepare to convene in New Orleans, LA, we are coming with a fighting spirit like that which animated the workers in their call for a general strike in 1892. We come with a dedication and continued commitment to realize racial, economic, and gender justice not just in the South but every state across the country.

The conference will include discussions on:

  • Supporting worker organizing
  • Immigration and migrant worker rights
  • Policies to support children, families, and early childhood education
  • Coalition building within and across states
  • Leveraging federal funding to advance equity and create good jobs
