Join the Institute for Policy Studies, Teaching for Change Bookstore, Busboys and Poets, and the National Priorities Project (NPP) for a dynamic multimedia presentation and exchange on a new book, A People’s Guide to the Federal Budget that deconstructs the complexities of the budgeting process. Discussed will also be how citizens can play a role in influencing budget priorities in the people's interests. Led by NPP Executive Director Jo Comerford, this forum will be suitable and interesting to ages from high school on up. Bring your students! Bring your teachers! As stakeholders, it is our right and our obligation to see that our tax dollars are spent in ways that reflect our priorities.
