Kim Klein energized and educated us with her presentation, Non-profits Talking Taxes, at the LWVC Convention. On March 18 Kim will return to central California to present a full day workshop, giving members and people active in the non-profit sector the tools they need to advocate for funding for the common good and to discuss the role of taxes in providing services essential for the common good.
What Is "Talking Taxes"?
If you can talk and listen to another person, you’re well qualified to lead this workshop. That’s what common good conversations are all about. Since the common good is about creating a world that is beneficial for all living things, we all need to be part of the conversation. “Does Measure X on our state’s ballot contribute to the common good?” “How can we advocate for the people our nonprofit serves?” The workshop will help you discuss these questions (and others) in a way that fosters collaboration (not competition, arguments, or discord).
