Fair Tax Townhall

  • Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center 202 South Broadway Avenue Urbana, IL, 61801 United States (map)

Did you know Illinois is one of the only states that still use a flat tax system? This disadvantages us in how we are able to fund essential programs and industries, ultimately making it harder for Illinois as a state to provide for ALL residents.

But we have an opportunity to change this! This May, the Illinois legislature will be voting on whether or not to give residents the opportunity in November to vote on the General Election ballot to amend the Illinois Constitution to implement a fair tax structure.

This month, The People's Agenda will be partnering with the Responsible Budget Coalition to host an informational townhall dedicated to explaining what that system would look like on the ground-level in industries such as education and healthcare, and what we can do as community members to encourage our elected officials to support fair tax legislation. This event will offer many opportunities to get further involved in promoting a fair tax in Illinois, so please make sure you come prepared to learn and participate!

Join us for this townhall next Sunday, April 15 from 2-4 pm at the Independent Media Center, located at 202 S. Broadway Ave in Urbana. For more information and to RSVP, please visit the event's Facebook page

We hope to see you there!
