Racist Roots of Tax Policy Webinars hosted by The Colorado Fiscal Institute
Tax policy isn’t race neutral. In fact, the history of its development shows us how it has been used explicitly as a tool for discriminating against people of color. Tax policy has been a powerful tool for shaping our country’s political, social, and economic landscape and has contributed to further consolidation of wealth and power into the hands of a small, predominantly white, group of people in the United States. But tax policy can also be wielded to undo those harms, right past wrongs, and build a more equitable future. It can be a tool for creating a true and healthy democracy.
The Colorado Fiscal Institute invites you to join them for a zoom webinar to understand the history and reasons behind why racism is at the root of tax policy, and how we can change the tax code to create a system that builds a more equitable future.
The webinars are being hosted in February 2021, March 2021, and April 2021. For more information and to register, visit their website:
