We are excited to bring the network together in Cleveland, Ohio for our first in-person EARNCon in three years! We hope you’ll join us this year in Cleveland at the Westin Cleveland Downtown from Wednesday, September 28 – Friday, September 30, 2022.
EARNCon is the network’s premier opportunity to strategize together, build relationships, and collectively shape a worker-centered state and local research and policy agenda for 2023 and beyond—highlighting campaign approaches and policy solutions for achieving racial, economic, and gender justice while also strengthening our community of researchers, policy analysts, labor partners, and grassroots organizers.
Check back soon for EARNCon 2022 updates!

- Alex Camardelle, Director of Workforce Policy, Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies
- Angela Hanks, Counselor to the Secretary, Department of Labor

Every level of government needs to prioritize antiracist policies if we are ever going to effectively confront racial wage, income, wealth, and employment gaps. This session will discuss the need to center people of color in our economic research and policymaking, the particular harm Black and Brown communities suffered in the pandemic, and the state and local policies that can help us achieve a more equitable economy.
