Budget Deficits and their Impact on Families

Conversations about saving money by cutting services rarely include impact statements regarding individuals, families and communities. The following article is the first of many we will include from all over the country. What does it look like from your community's perspective?
The Women of Color Policy Network has issued a policy brief, Analysis of FY 2012 Budget and Deficit Reduction Proposals, analyzing each budget for their impact on women of color, their families and communities. At a time when unemployment rates remain close to double digits, the Network stresses that the focus must be on building a stronger future for all with investments in infrastructure, people and communities.
