Join advocates, community leaders, policymakers, students, and others across the state for the Washington State Budget & Policy Center’s annual policy summit, Budget Matters. This year, we’re so excited to celebrate groundbreaking policy wins that will make Washington state’s tax code more equitable and will help more people live with dignity. But we know it will take more than a single legislative session to undo generations of harm, exclusion, and inequity caused by historical and ongoing budget and policy decisions. There is much more work to do. We’re in it for the long haul to build a state economy that supports community well-being – and we hope you will be, too. Budget Matters 2021 will hold space for us to reflect on 15 years of advocacy and imagine together what is next for progressive economic policy in Washington state.
We are once again hosting a virtual summit this year. The program will feature local speakers as well as members of the Budget & Policy Center team. More details will be announced as we get closer to the event.
