Mark your calendars! Raise the 'Roots: Grassroots Organizing for Tax Fairness, the annual conference of the Tax Fairness Organizing Collaborative,is coming to Nashville on May 16th and 17th! Spaces are limited; register today!
How can tax fairness organizers create a bottom-up economic justice movement in which those most affected by economic inequality are actively engaged, setting the agenda, and pushing for change? Raise the ‘Roots, the annual conference of the Tax Fairness Organizing Collaborative, will examine this mission-critical question, exploring actionable tips and strategies for community organizers to connect more effectively with diverse constituencies to promote progressive tax policies.
The conference is presented by the Tax Fairness Organizing Collaborative, a network of state-level grassroots organizations that advocate for progressive and adequate state taxes. The TFOC is a project of United for a Fair Economy, an economic justice nonprofit based in Boston.
Admission is $75 and open to allies and advocates involved in the tax fairness movement. This conference is appropriate for community leaders, activists, and organizers, legislators, people concerned with tax policy, people not yet concerned with tax policy, policy wonks, journalists, foundation representatives, people with good ideas, and anyone else who believes in the power of a bottom-up movement.
