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.

The 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. In the past, we have been honoured to welcome to our stage luminaries as diverse as former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Gloria Steinem, Robert Reich and Van Jones.

This year’s Summit is hosted in partnership with the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung and the Roosevelt Institute.

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.

Among our eminent speakers: LaTosha Brown, Co-founder, Black Voters Matter Fund, Althia Raj, Ottawa Bureau Chief, HuffPost Canada, Jagmeet Singh, MP, Leader, New Democratic Party of Canada, Lisa Nandy, MP, UK Shadow Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, Dr Andrew Leigh, MP, Australia Shadow Assistant Minister for Treasury and Charities, Wolfgang Schmidt, State Secretary, German Federal Ministry of Finance, Brigitte Alepin, Author, Filmmaker and tax expert, Co-Founder of Tax Coop, Felicia Wong, President and CEO, Roosevelt Institute, Jessica Ramos, New York State Senator, Morris Pearl, Chair, Patriotic Millionaires, Sochie Nnaemeka, State Director, New York Working Families Party and Toby Sanger, Director, Canadians for Tax Fairness
