The Center for Community Change and the National Priorities Project will hold a webinar titled “Protecting Our Communities: A Community Guide to Resisting the President’s Budget” on Wednesday, April 19 at 2 pm ET.
The webinar will discuss:
- Experiences of sustained divestment in communities and the need for government to value families trying to make ends meet rather than to target and control communities.
- Where federal money goes and where it comes from, and who makes the decisions and how.
- How the president’s proposals for militarization, from policing to the Pentagon, immigration enforcement, and cuts to jobs, education, housing, and health would be felt by communities around the country.
- Tools and resources (i.e., sample op-eds, press releases, and fact sheets) that can assist in engaging with local elected officials and the media.
Using National Priorities Project’s online tools, the webinar will show in real time how the president’s proposals would affect your state or city, and what a values-driven, responsible budget alternative would look like.
