This event was rescheduled. The original event date was September 23, 2021.
On Thursday, October 14, 2021, The People’s University is back for round two of its educational webinar series titled “Manufactured Scarcity: Budgets 101.”
Budgets reflect our values and priorities; yet we allocate immense resources to police, prisons, and major businesses, and away from safety nets that keep our communities healthy, happy, and whole. In North Carolina, the state legislature’s proposed budget continues to divest in people’s resources, ranging from housing to healthcare and workers’ rights.
We will discuss how decision makers invest resources, from our tax dollars, into police, prisons, and divest from education, social services, and other resources that are proven to keep our communities safe.
