A Conversation With Our Legislators:
PA Budget Challenges and Opportunities for Women and Girls

Friday, March 30 • 8-10 a.m.

Please join us on Friday, March 30, 2012 from 8-10 a.m. at BuxMont Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 2040 Street Road (Routes 611 and 132), Warrington, PA.  

The Bucks County Women’s Advocacy Coalition and the BuxMont Unitarian Universalist Fellowship are proud to host the Coalition’s Annual Conversation With Legislators. This year we will be presenting various perspectives on the PA Budget Challenges and Opportunities for Women and Girls.

We are pleased to welcome leading fiscal policy expert Sharon Ward who will provide an analysis of what’s at stake for women and girls in Governor Tom Corbett’s second budget proposal.  Ward, director of the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center, will give a sense of the key issues that will be in play this budget season and discuss opportunities to advocate for concrete policy options that will improve the lives and life chances of women and girls.

Noted labor economist Mark Price of the Keystone Research Center will discuss the direction of the state’s economy, with a particular focus on how working and low-income women are faring.  He will make the case that state budget decisions really matter for Pennsylvania’s prospects for robust job creation and economic recovery.

Coalition partners will discuss the impacts of our current financial realities on women and girls in Bucks County.  Several of our local legislators will also speak about what they see as the opportunities and challenges in the 2012 PA State Budget.
