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!

State of the National Economy
September 28, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
How can we achieve more equitable workplaces and labor market outcomes? By forcing through better policies, say EPI economists. In this session, EPI economists and researchers share their take on the current state of the economy and project where they we’re headed. Economist AMA (Ask Me Anything) breakouts will enable participants to engage directly in conversation with EPI economists and researchers on a range of topics including racial and worker justice and labor standards.
