JCore Meeting on Fair Tax @ Grace Place
Jul 31 @ 6:15 pm – 8:00 pm

Join us for a JCore meeting on Tuesday, July 31 to discuss the exciting opportunities for JCUA to organize around the Fair Tax campaign. The Fair Tax referendum will be on the ballot in November 2020, and if passed, will allow the state of Illinois to tax wealthier residents at a higher rate to direct more money for public goods and services. JCUA has been a long-standing supporter of this campaign. We’re holding this meeting to discuss the impact of the referendum and to gather your ideas about how JCUA can best move forward.

RSVP here.
