Question 1, The Fair Share Amendment: Why Progressives Should Be Engaged In the Campaign to Win
Wed August 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
After years of hard work by Raise Up Mass, the Massachusetts peace and social justice movement can accomplish something of great importance this fall: Raise significant revenue for Education, Public Transportation and Infrastructure by instituting a fair tax on millionaires.
Enid Eckstein is one of the campaign coordinators for the Fair Share Amendment Campaign. Her presentation will provide us with an in-depth understanding of the wording of the Amendment and what it will do for all of us — and provide us with the historical background for how we got here. She will let us know who the opposition is and examine their arguments as they make an all-out effort to defeat the amendment.
Finally, Enid will lay out Raise Up’s campaign to win at the polls in November and let us know how we can all get involved in some way. Her presentation will include a helpful power-point and discussion with the webinar’s audience.
Enid Eckstein has spent her adult life as a union organizer and union officer, organizing health care workers. She has also been involved in multiple community fights regarding hospital accountability and the struggle for community benefits. She is currently on the steering committees of Jamaica Plain Progressives and Raise Up Massachusetts.
