Part 4 of University of Oregon's Labor Education and Research Center for the Racial Equity and Union Solidarity 2021

Decades of attacks on public goods and services and demands for austerity and ‘taxpayer rights’ have had an enduring impact, evident in public ambivalence towards raising taxes and revenues and funding vital public services. This talk and discussion will focus on the role of race and racism in legitimating such attacks, and highlight the challenge and opportunities for public sector unions to join with others in a broad vision of public reconstruction.
