Impact of Looming Budget Cuts on Low-Income Families, our Communities, and our Economy (Webinar)

April 5, 2012

The recently-passed House Republican budget plan asks low-income and middle-class Americans to shoulder the entire burden of deficit reduction while simultaneously delivering massive tax breaks to the richest 1 percent. In addition, cuts to key low-income programs are scheduled to take place early next year unless Congress comes forward with a more responsible alternative to reduce the deficit.

On this webinar on Tuesday, April 10 at 1:00pm EST a distinguished panel of experts will break down the House budget’s cuts to the safety net, detail the consequences of automatic budget cuts slated for early next year, and discuss what these cuts mean for low-income families and our economy. We’ll then provide some tools, messaging techniques, and action steps you can use to push back and assert a proactive case for the safety net and an economy that works for all.
