We know all too well the impact that federal budgeting decisions have on our states. Women and working families are disproportionately impacted by cuts to safety net programs while too much money is being wasted on unneeded and ineffective weapons programs at the Pentagon.

In this exclusive webinar opportunity, learn more about the federal budget proposals presented by the President and by Members of Congress which represent starkly different approaches to issues Americans identify as top priorities: education, Social Security, jobs, and other domestic investments.

Featuring National Priorities Project Senior Research Analyst Jasmine Tucker, this webinar will explain differences between the major budget proposals, what comes next in the federal budget process, and how you can speak up for the best investments for your state.
