The Up From Debt conference aims to build a national conversation around debt that makes connections between the various types of debt that communities and families are grappling with. This is just the beginning of a process to de-stigmatizing debt, educate the public and organize to transform the systems that result in widespread indebtedness.

Language and cultural barriers, lack of Internet, and remote or rural communities, have left large numbers of people across the United States unable to enroll in health care provided under the Affordable Care Act, or to access a doctor or clinic once enrolled.

Additionally, lawmakers in 22 states have refused to accept federal funding for Medicaid expansion. They have closed the doors to health care for almost four million people – more than half are Black or Latino.

Please join Gary Delgado, the Alliance for a Just Society and Race Forward for the “Breaking Barriers to Health Care Access” webinar. Gary Delgado lead researcher and author of the “Breaking Barriers” report and a board member of the Alliance for a Just Society.

About the Report: “Breaking Barriers” analyzes impediments to health care, especially for low income African Americans, Latinos, Asian-Pacific Islanders, and Native Americans – and gives solutions.

Workers are falling short financially in our nation, and there are few living wage jobs to go around. With most of America’s job growth taking place in low-wage occupations, the reality facing workers is clear: America is becoming a low-wage nation and, without action, the living wage crisis will only continue to worsen.
 
Join the Alliance for a Just Society as we discuss the findings of our new report, “Low Wage Nation: Nearly Half of New Jobs Don’t Pay Enough to Make Ends Meet.” Learn about the implications for working families in a low-wage nation, the importance of investing in good jobs, and how communities are fighting back.
 
Speakers include:

• Allyson Fredericksen, Ben Henry, and Jill Reese of the Alliance for a Just Society
• Greg LeRoy, executive director of Good Jobs First; and
• Will Pittz, executive director of Washington Community Action Network

Any additional speakers will be announced prior to the start of the webinar.
