You’re invited to our second annual Together NC event hosted by the Budget & Tax Center, a project of the NC Justice Center, and NC Black Alliance.
Together NC is an opportunity to learn about and celebrate our collective commitment to funding the public institutions and services that can deliver well-being to us all.
We are delighted to host this talk by Vanessa Williamson, a Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, on April 15.
Vanessa Williamson is an expert on attitudes about taxes and the author of Read My Lips: Why Americans are Proud to Pay Taxes, which upends the notion that Americans are kneejerk opponents of taxes and spending. Her recent work has focused on the connections between the tax system and racial justice, with research on why progressive taxes on wealth are needed to close the racial wealth gap and historical links between austerity and white supremacy.
Please register now to join us on April 15 from noon to 1 p.m.!
