AFN Tax Policy Project - Seizing the Moment

May 17, 2013, 1:00pm-2:00pm EDT Grantmaker Webinar

This webinar has been completed. See recording below.


Practitioners, advocates, policymakers, researchers and grantmakers who care about family financial security are increasingly viewing national tax policy reform as a window of opportunity to advance asset-building policy that will significantly benefit low- and moderate- income people and people of color. Funders have an important role in making this type of reform a reality.

Grantmakers joined AFN on Friday, May 17th from 1:00-2:00 pm (EDT) for a briefing on AFN's new Tax Policy Project. The webinar gave an understanding of current tax reform conversations underway in Washington, the window of opportunity to advance asset-building policy, and the process that AFN will be facilitating to support stakeholders to identify and advance shared priorities as part of the political process.

This webinar featured comments from:

  • Robert Friedman, CFED;
  • Eugene Steuerle, Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center;
  • Lisa Mensah, The Aspen Institute/Initiative on Financial Security;
  • AFN Tax Policy Project Co-Chairs: Kilolo Kijakazi, Ford Foundation, and Amanda Feinstein, Walter & Elise Haas Fund; and
