    This year has been incredibly difficult for most working families.   The EWMC conference will serve as a reminder that working in solidarity with our allies for the common good is the answer to building a better future.  We have persevered despite the devastating impact of the pandemic particularly on people of color and women, voter suppression, racial and gender divisiveness, economic insecurities, and a multitude of intentionally placed barriers to prevent us from regaining control of our leadership and most valued institutions.  Our strong beliefs in a better future have propelled us on with fortitude and resilience to gain equity and justice for all.  The EWMC is prepared to work diligently to be a voice for positive change to help shape and employ sound practices and policies to rebuild our nation and communities.
