Progress Summit 2021
Our annual Progress Summit brings together some of the world’s most insightful policy-makers, elected officials, movement-builders and thought leaders to take on the issues of the day and chart a course to a more just and inclusive society.
Given the constraints imposed by the pandemic, our 10th Anniversary Progress Summit will occur on-line and comprise three sessions spread between March and May of 2021. Our program will take a deep dive into old and new challenges and opportunities we face in this unusual time, including how to build a post-pandemic recovery with prosperity for all.
March 11th 12pm - 3:30pm EST (6pm - 9:30pm CET)
Part 1: Who pays for recovery? Fair taxes and building a future for all
Join us in early March for the first chapter of our 10th Anniversary Progress Summit series as we explore how progressive tax measures can reduce wealth and income inequality and provide resources to undertake a bold and sustainable post-COVID recovery.
The pandemic has uncovered long-standing fault lines in our society, but its silver lining is the demonstration that we can overcome great challenges when we work together.
Throughout the virtual program, we’ll host inspiring speakers, interactive sessions and compelling conversations about how to turn overwhelming public support for fairer and more effective taxation into clear policy wins. We’ll talk to leaders and activists from around the world about what types of proposals are gaining the most ground and where they are already in place and working.
This year’s Summit is hosted in partnership with the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung and the Roosevelt Institute.
