Taxes! Taxes! Taxes!

April 17, 2012 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Taxes! Taxes! Taxes!

Chuck with book coverCome one, come all, and join Resource Generation in hosting author Chuck Collins for a tax day inspired conversation about the wealth gap and what we DC can do about it. Light food will be served. Learn a little about Resource Generation and the work we do around class and the wealth divide here in DC. Chuck Collins from the Institute for Policy Studies will lead a discussion on his new book which tackles critical issues including:

  • Who are the 99%? Who are the 1%?
  • Why is inequality so dangerous – not just for the poor and disadvantaged, but for everyone?
  • What can we all do to build a more equitable, democratic society?
  • Why can taxing the wealthy can help us all?

Check out this clip about Collins’s book and this blog post as well.

Since 1998, Resource Generation has engaged over 1,800 young people with wealth across the U.S. Through community building, education and organizing, we help young people with wealth bring all they have and all they are to the social change movements and issues they care about. We organize to transform philanthropy, policy, and institutions, and leverage our collective power to make lasting structural change.
