Understanding the State Budget and How it Can Further Racial Equity

Friday, February 18, 09:30 AM - Friday, February 18, 2022, 12:00 PM
Friday, February 18, 2022, 09:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Fee: $45 for MCN members / $65 for nonmembers
In the session, you’ll learn about how state budget and tax decisions are made, how state funding is raised and spent, and how you can be part of setting the state’s budget priorities. Participants will gain an understanding of the state’s current budget situation and key budget decision points.

In addition to learning to navigate the current state budget process, you’ll also be invited to evaluate the process through a racial equity lens and imagine what a more equitable process might look like.

We have allotted 2.5 hours for this event to allow for plenty of discussion among attendees. Depending on the audience, this event may wrap up after 2 hours.
