Webinar on Post-Supercommittee Advocacy

On Tuesday, Nov 20th, DHN held a Webinar. The details are below and a recording of the webinar may be found: here. Slides will follow soon.

The deal to raise the debt ceiling charged a special bipartisan committee of 12 members of Congress (also called “the Supercommittee”) with finding $1.2 trillion in federal savings by November 23rd, the day before Thanksgiving. We will gather witnesses from the faith community and other experts and report back to you. You’ll find out:
What happened?
What does it mean for programs that protect impoverished and vulnerable people?
What’s next? And what can I do?

Sammie Moshenberg, National Council of Jewish Women
Reverend Dr. J. Herbert Nelson, II, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Office of Public Witness, &
Indivar Dutta-Gupta, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, among others.
