Webinar: Why cash matters for an equitable economic recovery

July 9, 2020, Zoom
2 p.m.

Please join us for an inside look at why direct cash assistance matters for an equitable economic recovery. We are excited to welcome special guest speaker Mia Birdsong, community visionary who is updating our nation’s outdated picture of families in America. Her work as a Senior Fellow at the Economic Security Project focuses on providing economic stability to those who need it most through a proven method – unrestricted cash payments. We’ll also be joined by B&PC’s Emily Vyhnanek, Working Families Tax Credit Coalition Manager; Margaret Babayan, Policy Analyst; and Liz Olson, Policy Analyst, to share strategies for expanding cash assistance in Washington state.
