Fall Workshop (3 of 5): Fair Taxes for All

10/26/2010 6:30 pm
10/26/2010 8:30 pm

This newly-revised workshop establishes the notion of “progressive” taxation as the most responsible and fair system for raising adequate revenue, raises awareness about the role of government as provider of necessary infrastructure, services, and social safety net, stimulus for job creation, and protector of the common wealth.

"Fair Taxes For All" provides clear and accessible information about the scope of the Bush tax laws, and tax trends in the last 50 years, especially the tax shift from asset-owners, corporations, and the wealthy to wage earners. We will expose the political and social agenda driving the changes in tax rules and the attack on the public sector over the last several decades.

We will also review campaigns for action that help to address the “jobless recovery,” move us toward a more responsible and adequate tax system, protect consumers from the excesses of Wall Street speculation (financial sector reform), and ensure that government is accountable and responsive to the vast majority of workers rather than to large corporations and wealthy investors.

All workshops in our fall 2010 series will be held at the UFE office in Downtown Crossing at 29 Winter Street, 2nd Floor, Boston, MA. Click here for a map. Light refreshments will be provided.

SPACE IS LIMITED TO 20 PARTICIPANTS! Please RSVP to Steve Schnapp at sschnapp@faireconomy.org, or Jeannette Huezo at jhuezo@faireconomy.org.
