Budget Matters 2012

Thank you to the 300+ people who joined us on December 13th for our first annual policy conference at the Washington State Convention Center.

We brought together legislators, advocates, and policy experts for a great day of interesting and dynamic conversations, targeted solutions, and thought-provoking discussions. We were honored to have Van Jones as our lunch speaker.
