[NJFAC] Announcement of Important Conference on a Jobs Guarantee and MMT

Dear Friends,
I want to call your attention to the following Conference of interest to all who advocate "Jobs for All. It is led by NJFAC's Board members Raúl Carrillo and Rohan Grey. I hope to see you there.
Best regards,
Trudy Goldberg
The Second Annual MMT Conference will be held at the New School in New York City from Sept 28-30. This year's theme is "Public Money, Public Purpose, Public Power", signaling the MMT community's efforts to build bridges between social justice movements, inspire broad-based participation, and more deeply discuss how our ideas may be concretized politically.
We are especially focused on discussing the future of the movement for a Job Guarantee, as well the Job Guarantee's eventual implementation.
Day 1 of the conference will feature a keynote discussion of how we might organize around a right to a job. This conversation will feature Raúl Carrillo (Director, Modern Money Network & National Jobs for All Coalition), Shawn Sebastian (Director, Center for Popular Democracy's Fed Up campaign), and Sarah Treuhaft (Senior Director, PolicyLink). This will be followed by a panel on the substantive dimensions of the Job Guarantee, especially focused on green work and care work. The panel will feature Pavlina Tcherneva, (Director, Economics Program, Bard College), Kate Aronoff (Journalist, The Intercept), Vicki Schultz, (Professor, Yale Law School), and Donatella Alessandrini (Professor, Kent Law School).
Day 2 of the conference will consist of a series of workshops, both academic and non-academic. Many of these workshops will focus on the Job Guarantee.  The Modern Money Network is taking a leadership role in organizing this year. We are still in the process of finalizing workshop topics and formats, so if any NJFAC members are interested in participating, with the knowledge that this is a yearly MMT community event, we would earnestly welcome your participation.
