The economy does not work for all of us, and it's apparent. In the U.S. we have a major problem with wealth distribution and many people being left out of the conversation when major financial decisions take place.
The opportunity for good, stable employment is particularly absent for African American and Hispanic workers who are more easily the victims of discrimination when the labor market is weak. And because our political culture does not give full value to the lives of Black and Brown people, we do not treat this reality as a crisis that must be solved immediately.
The FED Up campaign is our effort to get more transparency with the Federal Reserve in their descion making and appointment process. Our goal? Make sure that the voices of low to moderate income citizens in this state get a say and help shape the decision making in our country.
If you are a low wage worker, have high interest loans, have lost your house, own a business, or are just curious about how our economy works, attendance at this meeting is a must.
