Wealth Inequality and the Tax Code: Communications and Advocacy
Wealth inequality has been growing for decades and is now higher than at any time since the Great Depression. We know that tax policy is one of the drivers of growing wealth inequality, but economic trends and the federal tax code are tough talking points. The Wealth Inequality and the Tax Code webinar included a discussion of key talking points on wealth inequality and the “upside down” tax code, and an update on a national campaign to strengthen the EITC and CTC. This webinar was moderated by PolicyLink, with presentations by Prosperity Now, Americans for Tax Fairness and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities as well as co-hosted by several Tax Alliance member organizations.
