Concord conference to focus on ‘caring economy’
CONCORD — A conference about the “caring economy” is scheduled for Saturday in Concord, where issues such as living wages, retirement security, clean energy and family health will be discussed.
The conference is scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the IBEW Hall, 48 Airport Road.
Economists, faith leaders, climate activists, low-wage workers and organized labor are expected to participate.
The event is one in a series that the Center for Community Change is sponsoring across the country, including in Iowa and Nevada. Invitations have gone out to presidential candidates, New Hampshire congressional representative and state lawmakers.
“To be building a caring economy is to be in the midst of people and the conditions of life they experience,” said the Rev. Thomas Woodward, Nashua chapter member of the Granite State Organizing Project.
