This Tax Day 2021, will feature a talk by Vanessa Williamson, a Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution. She’s an expert on attitudes about taxes and the author of Read My Lips: Why Americans are Proud to Pay Taxes, which upends the notion that Americans are knee-jerk opponents of taxes and spending. Her recent work focused on the connections between the tax system and racial justice, with research on why progressive taxes on wealth are needed to close the racial wealth gap and historical links between austerity and white supremacy.
