Webinar - The Trump Budget: What You Need to Know
Thursday, March 14th
Join the Coalition on Human Needs for a webinar that will tell you what you need to know about the Trump Budget and arm you for the important fights to come.
The FY2020 Trump Budget came out yesterday, and and it would deny trillions of dollars in services to those who need them the most. Just like last year, the Trump Budget proposes big cuts to programs like healthcare, housing and food assistance, education, and more, all as tax cuts for the rich stay protected. It’s a bully’s budget that targets people the Trump Administration thinks can’t fight back.
Fortunately, that’s not true—we can fight back. Join CHN for a webinar that will tell you how, breaking down everything you need to know. You’ll also learn about positive opportunities to protect and expand the programs Trump wants to cut.
You’ll learn how to fight against cuts to basic needs programs like Medicaid or SNAP, and how we can advance real improvements in the services we need. You’ll find out more about the spending caps and how the President’s proposals would affect low- and moderate-income people through cuts to Medicaid, SNAP, housing, help for people with disabilities, education and job training, social services, and public health programs. And you’ll learn about opportunities to protect and expand human needs programs as Congress takes up the FY 2020 budget.
