Common Sense Economics: Mass Education for a Mass Movement

Wednesday, September 11 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Location: Room 403-A

Join us for an interactive session on a new module from the Common Sense Economics curriculum. As part of this year’s Convention we will be rolling out an updated curriculum and we need your input! We need your feedback on what is needed to develop a full program and implement it with hundreds of thousands of workers, students and community partners. The new curriculum will have both online and classroom components that will include, among other issues, a focus on economic issues that impact younger workers, women and people of color.
