Building on Progress Together

Virtual Summit | October 19

Join us on October 19 for Budget Matters 2022: Building on progress together. We will hear from advocates who have direct experience in building powerful connections and creating policies that will bring Washington state closer to economic justice.

This year, Budget Matters will have two sessions. In the first session, we will discuss the power of coalition-driven movements and how it resulted in the recent passage of key policy priorities, like the Immigrant Relief Fund and the Working Families Tax Credit. This session will be led by Alizeh Bhojani of OneAmerica and Denisse Guerrero of Washington Community Alliance.

The second session will focus on how we can continue the momentum for getting direct cash assistance into the hands of Washingtonians by creating a statewide guaranteed basic income program. Budget & Policy Center Policy Analyst Tracy Yeung will facilitate a conversation between Dona Ponepinto of United Way of Pierce County and Jennifer Bereskin of the Qawalangin Tribe of Unalaska – Unangax Coast Salish – Snohomish Nation Youngest Daughter of the SeaMonster Man
