We have received many questions over the past few weeks about whether the 2020 Just Economy Conference would go forward amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, circumstances beyond our control have made it impossible to proceed with this year’s conference. As much as it hurts our hearts, the health and safety of our participants is our number one priority, and the best way for everyone to stay safe right now is to stay at home.
We hold our conference every year to equip our members and allies with the best tools and most up-to-date information in our field, and to build and exercise our power as a coalition. But beyond that, it’s where we get to meet our friends and partners who fight for economic justice alongside us every single day. At the conference, we get to see face-to-face the people who stand shoulder-to-shoulder with us and defend our communities when they are under attack. That feeling of camaraderie is especially hard to replace, but know that NCRC is here to serve you in this incredibly difficult time.
We are already seeing the devastating economic impact of this virus. It is going to hit the people we serve hardest of all. As everyone figures out how to refocus their work in this new world, rest assured that NCRC is working on the best way to continue fighting for economic justice, and the best way to support those of you on the frontlines of this fight.
