August 21 Webinar: A People’s Budget Based on Human Rights

People's Budget webinar flyerOn August 21 (3pm EST) the good folks at NESRI (National Economic & Social Rights Initiative) will be hosting a webinar: “A People’s budget Based on Human Rights.”

What do our federal, state and city budgets have to do with the disturbing increase in inequality and poverty in the United States? Faced with repeated budget cuts, we desperately seek to protect food stamps, housing programs, education funding and other important public services that ensure our basic human rights. Yet that also means essential programs get pitted against each other, and we lose sight of what should be obvious: the purpose of our local, state and federal budgets is to meet people’s needs.

We need an entirely different approach to making budgets! Join our webinar on August 21 and check out NESRI’s short animated video that shows how we can change the budget process to ensure that spending and tax policy is responsive to people’s voices, needs and rights.
