Budget Cuts Imperil Women

Why Sacramento Ignores Life-Saving Alternatives

Women, especially women of color, are  hardest hit by the austerity measures enacted 
by Democratic Gov. Brown and  the California Legislature in March.The cuts target the 
most vulnerable  women and men: the poor, disabled, elderly and students. Better solutions 
exist, like closing  corporate tax loopholes and reducing prison expenditures. A panel  addresses
 how to prioritize need, not greed.  Discussion follows;  everyone is invited to share ideas.
