Event: GWC Briefing and Planning


Join fellow Georgia partners and advocates to learn the latest about the Georgia Work Credit and brainstorm strategic activities for 2019. We will showcase recent collaboration with Prosperity Now to strengthen connections to VITA sites, review the latest data on the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and explore how this bottom-up tax cut can advance race equity. After these updates, we will discuss opportunities to support a Georgia Work Credit in 2019 and map out possible activities moving forward.

Lunch will be served, so please list any special dietary requests when registering.
