Change Machine: April Convening – From Tax Complexity to Tax Equity

March 23, 2021


Change Machine is excited to partner with Prosperity Now to launch our inaugural convening, From Tax Complexity to Tax Equity on Tuesday, April 13th. As the tax season gets underway, we know that wealthy filers will be rewarded for their entrepreneurial approach to the tax code, while Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC) filers — disproportionately Black and Brown women who head their households – will navigate complex processes and scrupulous audits.

In partnership with on-the-ground practitioners who work everyday to make the tax system more accessible by advocating for expanded tax credits for working families, uniformity of benefit definitions, and more, we’re calling for a move from complexity to equity.

Mae Watson Grote, Founder and CEO of Change Machine, and Gary Cunningham, CEO of Prosperity Now, will also join this conversation.

Our panelists include:

• Amina Kirk, Assistant Director of Policy, Change Machine (Moderator)
• Joanna Ain, Associate Director of Policy, Prosperity Now
• Kalitha Williams, Project Director, Policy Matters Ohio
• Alejandro Valenzuela Jr., Tax and Financial Services Director, Prepare + Prosper

Register today for this conversation and share your insights on moving from tax complexity to tax equity. We need your partnership to create a thriving economy for all.
