Thursday, June 23
3:00 p.m.–3:15 p.m. (exclusively part of the Creative Freelancer Conference)
Independent People, Collective Good
Freelancers are 31% of the workforce, but are excluded from traditional supports, benefits and protections. How can these independent workers come together to make their careers and their communities stronger? Freelancers Union will give a quick introduction to the ideas of solidarity and mutualism that fuel labor movements past and present. In times when work—and unions—are less stable, Freelancers Union presents a new form of unionism by bringing independent workers together to build knowledge, networks, and mutual support.
