The new Congress has more members who favor cuts to Medicaid, SNAP/Food Stamps, and many other programs, threatening services low-income people need.  Support will increase for massive tax cuts favoring the wealthy and corporations, too.  Hear from national experts Joel Friedman and Ellen Nissenbaum of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities about how and when Congress will take up its new round of critical budget decisions (hint:  it’s soon!).  They’ll help you understand what’s at risk and strategies to protect vital programs.  And learn about do-able steps you can take to protect services from Deborah Weinstein of the Coalition on Human NeedsThe moderator is Steve Savner of the Center for Community Change.  There will be time for questions, and follow-up materials will be provided to all registrants.
