The Coming State Budget Crises: What Child Advocates Need to Know to be Effective and Antiracist

State tax revenues are falling steeply just when states most need resources to support children and families. Because 49 states are required to balance their budgets, nearly all states can expect proposals to cut many services for children. This webinar was originally offered on Monday, September 14 and is for child advocates to learn what to expect, what steps to take now to prepare, and what options to consider in your advocacy to protect services. The Partnership for America’s Children, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the Center for Law and Social Policy, and the National Women’s Law Center sponsored this webinar with Wesley Tharpe, Deputy Director of State Policy Research at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities; Cortney Sanders, Policy Analyst at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities; and Rich Huddleston, Executive Director at Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, to help you prepare for the budget fights in your state.
