Speak Up for a Fairer Tax Code to Support Arizona’s Priorities

    YWCA of Southern Arizona

    Tucson, AZ 85745

    “For more than 27 years, the Arizona legislature has been cutting taxes and supporting special interest groups while Arizonans work harder for less money and public schools go underfunded. At the beginning of the legislative session, Arizonans told public-policy makers that they wanted a cleaner and fairer tax code – bills that would eliminate exemptions, exclusions, and credits for corporations. Instead, the legislators have chosen to ignore everyday Arizonans and continue the tradition of picking winners and losers.

    Event topics:

    • To make your voice heard by Arizona legislators on how our upside-down tax code impacts you.
    • Learn how Arizona’s unfair tax code is impacting the ability to have quality public schools in every neighborhood and to properly fund the priorities you care about.
    • Mobilize and take action to ensure the legislators we elect are working to create a tax code that works for all Arizonans.”
