Making August Recess Count: Building Support for Federal Recovery Legislation to Advance Racial Equity
July 16, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
View a recording of this webinar here. See the slides here.
The Biden Administration’s proposed American Jobs and American Families Plans provide unprecedented opportunities to address deep-seated racial inequities in education, employment, health, housing, and income. With this Administration and Congress, we have a very real chance of advancing once-in-a-lifetime legislation that would lift millions out of poverty, help all kids reach their full potential, get workers better pay and benefits, and expand health coverage.
But none of this can become a reality without Congress. And while Congress adjourns for recess this August, we have an ideal opportunity to build momentum for lasting change. Join the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, Community Change, and the Coalition on Human Needs for a webinar on:
• Why recovery legislation is so important, and how it can advance racial equity;
• What comes next, and the strategy moving forward;
• What tools, resources, and tactics you can use for engaging Congress this August recess.
