    “The Arizona Center for Economic Progress invites you to join them for a FREE workshop on Connecting the Dots Between Fiscal Policies and Your Priorities. They will spend the afternoon sharing strategies and tactics that we can all use to build strong public support for cleaning up Arizona’s tax code and eliminating special interest tax breaks so that we will be better able to invest in those priorities that benefit all Arizonans.

    They want to work with you to drive the narrative in 2018 for everyone paying their fair share and lay the foundation to advocate for revenue for meaningful public investments in the priorities many of us share.

    Workshop topics:

    >> Why an agenda for a fairer tax code matters to your priorities
    >> Effective ways to incorporate budget and tax issues into your own advocacy work
    >> Working together to make tax fairness a priority for Arizonans in 2018

    The workshop is free, but space is limited. If you’d like to attend this event you can RSVP online:…
