New Learning Labs!

*NEW* June 10, 7pm – “It Doesn’t Add Up”: An Intro to Wage Theft in the US. It’s not just nail salon workers getting their wages stolen – wage theft is everywhere, and its systematic. This Lab will analyze wage theft in the United States on both the individual and collective level, looking at how it affects both the average worker and society at large. What factors drove wage theft into becoming the most common form of property crime in the country? What are the challenges to enforcing existing labor laws, and what policies may better address wage abuse? Ultimately, what can we at MYD do about it?

*NEW* June 17, 7pm – Making the Case for the Environment: Communications Strategies that Work. This workshop will look at what made opposition to fracking a success and how to apply those lessons to the key environmental challenges awaiting us in coming years, be it raising awareness of climate change, stopping the Port Ambrose LNG project, or moving the US towards cleaner energy sources. What messages resonate best with lawmakers and the public, who are the key decision makers to target, and what tactics have been proven to work? Taught by the Sane Energy Project’s Patrick Robbins, this Lab is for both environmental advocates and those looking to boost their communications skills overall.
