Advancing racial equity through tax policy

Join the conversationsign up today

Hundreds of policymakers, advocates, community leaders, students, and other civic-minded Washingtonians will be at the Budget & Policy Center’s 2019 Budget Matters Policy Summit to join in the discussion about the racist impacts of our broken tax code – and how we can work together to advance bold policy solutions that will help address these systemic inequities. Tax policy and racial justice experts Michael Mitchell from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and Misha Hill from the Institute for Taxation and Economic Policy will be featured speakers at the summit. More speakers will be announced soon!
