2018 Prosperity Summit Session: Advancing Race, Ethnic and Gender Equity Through the Tax Code – Tax Credits and Beyond
September 6, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDTFree
How do tax policies and related programs intersect with racial, gender, and immigrant justice? How are states and localities building on tax credit successes and responding to the urgency of the tax changes brought on by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act? How can philanthropy—funders focused on equity and those focused on economic mobility—work together to promote more inclusive and equitable tax policies that help build prosperity for all?
Join the EITC Funders Network, the Asset Funders Network (AFN), Closing the Women’s Wealth Gap Initiative, Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR), Economic Opportunity Funders (EOF), and the Philanthropic Initiative for Racial Equity (PRE) at the 2018 Prosperity Summit for a unique funders-only opportunity to explore the linkages between the tax code and racial and gender equity. This convening will contextualize state and federal tax policy shifts, provide lessons learned from the field, and foster the opportunity for peer-to-peer learning, collaboration, and action planning.
