Building a Strong North Carolina

8:30 - 11am, Tuesday, December 11

United Way and the NC Budget & Tax Center, a project of the NC Justice Center, are teaming up to share the story of the economy and the NC state budget.  In addition, Elizabeth Brazas (Community Foundation of WNC) and Jack Cecil (Biltmore Farms) will present on Tax Modernization.

Throughout this interactive session, you will have the opportunity to respond and help write the next chapter in the story.  Be prepared to answer a few questions and to learn a few facts that you can put into action.  Here’s a snapshot of what you can expect:

  • How have the state budget and the economy impacted your community?
  • What budget trends are developing, and how long will it take for NC to recover from the Great Recession?
  • Is NC falling behind in areas like Education, Income and Health?
  • How is NC’s tax structure holding our state back?
  • How can you impact the issues you care most about?  Join with others to focus your local advocacy for the greatest outcome.
