CPPP in the News

We thought we’d share two particularly fun and poignant stories from today that quote CPPP:

CultureMapATX, an online magazine about all things life and culture in Austin, featured our documentary “A Fighting Chance” in anticipation of tonight’s KLRU Civic Summit, which will air on the Austin PBS station starting at 8 p.m. Tune in watch as we tell the stories of five Texas families working to make ends meet. Immediately following the 30-minute piece, the Civic Summit: What It Really Takes Texas Families panel discussion will address what Texas families need to overcome unexpected financial hardship and get back on their feet. You can read CultureMap’s full story here.

Watch our trailer:

Today on The Austin Chronicle website, Richard Whittaker reports on the upcoming budget writing process. Lawmakers made some significant budget cuts last session to things Texas families need and rely on, including education and health care. As Eva points out in the story, this session lawmakers have an opportunity to restore that money and plan for Texas’ future. You can read the full story here. Eva may or may not have influenced the story’s headline.

At the Center for Public Policy Priorities, we believe in a Texas that offers everyone the chance to compete and succeed in life. We envision a Texas where everyone is healthy, well-educated, and financially secure. We want the best Texas - a proud state that sets the bar nationally by expanding opportunity for all. CPPP is an independent public policy organization that uses data and analysis to advocate for solutions that enable Texans of all backgrounds to reach their full potential. We dare Texas to be the best state for hard-working people and their families.
