On Tuesday, September 17, Appleseed hosted the fourth installment in our “Seeds of Learning” event series at Teddy & the Bully Bar in downtown DC. We were excited to welcome Meg Wiehe, Deputy Director of the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP) to discuss the organization’s recent report, “The Illusion of Race-Neutral Tax Policy.” The report highlights how tax policy is both a symptom and an instrument of systemic racism.
On Wednesday, April 10, Appleseed hosted its third "Seeds of Learning" event at the Festival Center in DC. We were excited to welcome Kriston McIntosh and Jay Shambaugh from the Brookings Institution's Hamilton Project, as well as moderator Rebecca Gould from Nebraska Appleseed, to discuss using evidence-based policy proposals and analysis to promote broad economic growth.
