Budget Matters 2020 Virtual Summit

November 17, 2020,

Mark your calendar to join the Washington State Budget & Policy Center for Budget Matters 2020 – Where we go from here: Ensuring an equitable recovery.

The current public health and economic crises caused by COVID-19 reveal and are exacerbated by deeply rooted inequities. Together, we will reimagine what it looks like to build an economy that works for everybody.

We look forward to bringing important connections and conversations to you in a new way this year. Stay tuned for more details.
