The 2018 EARN Conference will highlight the role of states in advancing policies that raise wages, improve jobs, and build an economy that rewards working families. Reflecting on the outcome of 2018 efforts and charting the direction for national and state-level policy discussions, EARN members and allies will convene to plan cross-state and cross-constituency agendas. More than 60 partners hailing from 43 states will come together to think collectively about critical emerging issues in state policy-making. Together, leading economic thinkers, policy experts, members of the labor movement, social services providers, community organizers, faith leaders, and academic researchers will discuss policies and strategies to lift up working families.
Conference dates: October 3–5, 2018*
