Tax policy not only funds governmental efforts but is often itself a driver of policy outcomes. Elected officials in recent years have pushed for or acted upon tax policy as a means for shaping everything from childcare to environmental policy. In this webinar, we’ll explore the role taxation plays in our democracy, the many ways in which it affects our lives, and the current state of debate around taxation in America.


Our panel will feature Alex Muresianu, federal tax analyst at The Tax Foundation and Niko Lusiani, the director of the Corporate Power Program at the Roosevelt Institute. Allan Carey, director of Sphere Education Initiative, will moderate the conversation. Zoe Callaway, manager of education and outreach at the Tax Foundation will offer professional development.
