Honoring the Center for Public Policy Priorities For Making Democracy Work in Texas
Monday, March 7, 2011--6:30 p.m, UT Etter-Harbin Alumni Center, Connally Ballroom LWV-Texas is pleased to celebrate the work of the Center for Public Policy Priorities (CPPP) with our first Making Democracy Work in Texas Award. CPPP's unique focus on low- and moderate-income Texans provides an understanding of the impact of government action on the lives of many Texans, an understanding essential for informed government decisions and public participation. CPPP's research is the gold standard on issues of economic opportunity, quality and affordable health insurance, fair and adequate taxation, child well-being, and basic family needs. F. Scott McCown, CPPP Executive Director and a retired state judge, has been called "the voice of the voiceless" and "the conscience" of Texas politics by Texas Monthly.
Join us March 7 as we celebrate advocacy and CPPP's unique contributions to Making Democracy Work for all Texans.
