Register Today for Half in Ten's August 15 Webinar on Budgeting for Prosperity (From Half In Ten)

Join Half in Ten and Rep. Keith Ellison for a webinar on how to cut poverty and the deficit! 
Budgeting for Prosperity
Wednesday August 15th

2-3 p.m. EST

In the last year we’ve seen budget and deficit-reduction proposals that ask struggling families to bear the brunt ofdeficit reduction in order to finance more tax breaks for millionaires. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Poverty reduction and deficit reduction are not mutually exclusive goals. The major deficit-reduction packages of the recent past all operated on one shared principle: Low-income Americans and the programs that support them should be protected in deficit reduction. In fact, in many cases investments were made as part of these packages that actually reduced poverty and strengthened the middle class.

Join a distinguished panel of speakers from Half in Ten, the Center for American Progress, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, and Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) for a webinar on how we can dramatically reduce poverty, grow our economy, and restore shared prosperity, even as we deal with long-term deficit reduction. With consequential lame duck fights approaching on tax fairness, the safety net, and deficit reduction, this webinar couldn’t be timelier. Register now!

In this webinar, participants will learn the details of the Center for American Progress’s poverty and deficit reduction plan, get the latest briefs and messaging resources, and learn how to put this information into practice in advance of the elections this fall. It’s time that we pivot from playing defense to playing offense on restoring shared prosperity for all. Register today!
