New Progressive Messaging for 2021, the COVID Economy, and Beyond
As election season closes, even during the COVID-19 pandemic and widespread economic devastation, conservatives and so-called “deficit hawks” are still advocating for decreasing spending by dredging up age-old fear-mongering on the size of the national debt, even though we know austerity responses will harm many Black, Brown, and other marginalized communities. .

Why is this? In part, it’s because neoliberal ideas are entrenched in the ways the public, media, and policymakers talk about the economy. Progressives must be prepared with an economic worldview now more than ever. Millions of people have slipped into poverty since the pandemic began, and more will follow without relief and stimulus. The progressive movement must push for massive, smart public spending and new economic frameworks required to have an inclusive and equitable recovery, invest in the next generation, and build a more resilient and sustainable economy.

Join featured speaker Anat Shenker-Osorio, founder and principal of ASO Communications and an expert on how to persuade and mobilize people on issues from tackling right-wing race-baiting to promoting clean energy. Shenker-Osorio is the author of Don’t Buy It: The Trouble with Talking Nonsense About the Economy. Her writing and research has been profiled in The Washington Post, The Atlantic and Boston Globe, among other outlets. She will summarize why progressives must talk about the economy in a way that better aligns with the electorate’s needs and preferences.

Afterwards, join Groundwork Collaborative, Democracy Collaborative, New Economy Coalition, and Economic Policy Institute to discuss what a new progressive economy looks like and messaging that advances anti-austerity, pro-public investment ideas and policies.
