House meetings have always been a basic foundation of organizing in America. They’re a great way to bring people together to build relationships, spread knowledge and information, and inspire action!

Over the coming months, Change Nation will create monthly guides to help you facilitate house meetings. We’ll help you discuss a range of topics:

  • We’ll learn some history – from the Great Depression and New Deal to how unions built the Middle Class.
  • We’ll look at current issues – from the fight to extend unemployment insurance to policies to create jobs.
  • We’ll explore new economic ideas and visions – from a vision for full employment to proposals for creating a fair economy.
