Where should our government spend our money? The progressive alternatives.
An evening with Chelsea Boilard, Christopher Cook, Chris Hoene and Eric See
(Four people who think about these things all the time).

For all of the insanity that Donald Trump is bringing to the White House and Capitol Hill, the fact is that there will be a budget this year -- and, if this year is like most, passing it will be the most significant thing that Congress does. Want to know what his proposals would do and alternatives are out there? Want to know what the budget fights are in Sacramento and San Francisco? Want ideas about what you can do? Then come out and hear:

On Washington:
Christopher Cook (author, journalist, and political campaigner) on the Trump budget and the Congressional Progressive Caucus's “People’s Budget” proposal.
(See his recent Progressive article Fiscal Fightback: Trump’s Budget Could Ignite Progressive Uprising
Eric See, Senior Director, Outreach and Organizing Campaigns
Peace Action.

On Sacramento: Chris Hoene, Executive Director of the California Budget & Policy Center.

On San Francisco: Chelsea Boilard, legislative aide to Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer and past Coleman Advocates budget and tax policy coordinator.
