Hear an Overview of the North Carolina State Budget, Economic Forecast, and Issues Affecting Your Community & Add Your Voice to the Discussion!
This year United Way, the NC Budget & Tax Center and the NC Justice Center are teaming up to share the story of the economy and the state budget. But, throughout this interactive session, your community will have the opportunity to respond and help write the next chapter in the story. During Building a Stronger North Carolina, 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 Public Safety?
- How can you impact the issues you care most about? Join with others to focus your local advocacy for the greatest outcome.
