NEW PRIORITIES WORKSHOP
WHAT KIND OF A SOCIETY DO WE WANT?
Creating New Priorities: Designing a Federal Budget That Helps Working People
Join in a 4-part UUP workshop to help shape the next federal budget in consultation with Congressman Tim Bishop
SESSION 1. IDENTIFYING PRIORITIES IN THE BUDGET (Mon. Sept. 30, 2013, noon – 1p.m.)
What priorities should guide the labor movement in shaping public policy? What kind of a society do we want, what kind of lives for our people? What priorities are reflected in the federal budget? How can the labor movement, and UUP within it, help to change the priorities our government actually pursues, especially in the way it raises and spends money?
SESSION 2: BUILDING A PEOPLE’S BUDGET (Mon. Nov. 4, 2013, noon – 1 p.m.)
How can UUP and the larger labor movement engage its members and work with allied community groups to establish concrete budget priorities? How can we work with Congress to advance these priorities in legislation? How can we engage the Congressional Progressive Caucus as it fashions its budget plan, released each spring?
SESSION 3: INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY (Mon. Feb. 24, 2014, noon – 1 p.m.)
How is our world economy interconnected? What is “Fair Trade”? What does international labor solidarity look like? How is it reflected in the budget, especially the size of the military budget?
SESSION 4: PRESENTING OUR BUDGET (Mon. March 31, noon – 1 p.m.)
The final session will present our budget priorities for the federal 2015 budget and explore ways UUP should be active to help change the priorities our government pursues. We will present our budget to Congressman Tim Bishop.
