SAVE THE DATE: Uniting on the High Road Conference

Date: February 27, 2024

Uniting on the High Road: A Conference on Economic Justice at the Local Level will take place on June 20-22, 2024 in Buffalo, NY. Hosted by Cornell University ILR Buffalo Co-Lab and Partnership for the Public Good, with community and academic partners from across Buffalo and nationwide, the conference will bring together activists and leaders working in local and national movements for racial and economic equality, climate justice, worker rights and power, and a strong democracy.

A rich schedule of interactive workshops, community forums, featured speakers, field experiences, and arts events will promote mutual learning and foster future collaboration.

Registration will open in March. 

The final morning of the conference will feature Democracy Sparks: a series of 5 minute presentations, open to anyone—community members, academics, elected officials, youth, etc. This session will showcase innovative ideas that serve the public good—either imagined or actualized—to ignite sparks of creativity and possibility. These talks should help our conference audience of advocates, researchers, lawyers, labor union members and others to imagine the future economy, democracy, and community that is possible through collective action.
