*Remaking the Economy: Envisioning a Restorative Future of Work
Event Category 

For good reason, the world of work is rarely seen as a liberatory space, but can it become so? NPQ’s latest webinar in our Remaking the Economy series looks at the workplace of today while exploring how our work lives might be transformed to support health and wellbeing, promote restorative justice, and provide not just “jobs” but livelihoods. This free webinar features three observers approaching this question from the standpoints of research; solidarity economy organizing; and on-the-ground reporting.

Leading this discussion are our three expert panelists:

Jessica Gordon Nembhard, professor in the Department of Africana Studies, John Jay College of the City University of New York (CUNY), and author of Collective Courage: A History of African American Cooperative Economic Thought and Practice.

Emily Kawano, co-founder of the US Solidarity Economic Network; co-director of Wellspring Cooperative in Springfield, Massachusetts; member of NPQ’s economic justice advisory committee.

Alissa Quart, executive director of the Economic Hardship Reporting Project, based in New York City, and author of six books, including Squeezed: Why Our Families Can't Afford America.
