The United Way and the NC Budget & Tax Center, a project of the NC Justice Center, are teaming up to share the story of the economy, the state budget and education reform.
The session will be held Wed., January 9 from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Girl Scouts Learning Center, 8818 West Market Street in Colfax.
Planned speakers include Jill Cox of the United Way of North Carolina and Brenna Burch and Alexandra Sirota of the NC Budget and Tax Center.
Throughout this interactive session, you and your community will have the opportunity to respond and help write the next chapter in the story. Be prepared to answer a few questions and to learn a few facts that you can put into action. Here's a snapshot of what you can expect:
How have the state budget and the economy impacted your community?
What budget trends are developing, and how long will it take for NC to recover from the Great Recession?
Is NC falling behind in areas like Education, Health and Financial Stability?
How can you impact the issues you care most about?
