On April 4th, the CCPA held its fourth annual telephone town hall, which enabled us to engage in a live, interactive dialogue with almost 3,000 of our supporters from coast to coast, and from the comfort of their own homes.
Our Executive Director, Peter Bleyer, hosted a lively discussion with CCPA economists and researchers, including David Macdonald, Trish Hennessey, Erika Shaker, Scott Sinclair, Sheila Block, Hadrian Mertins-Kirkwood and Monitor editor, Stuart Trew.
The team fielded a record number of questions from supporters on a broad range of topics, including: inequality, the environment, international trade, basic income, and many more. Throughout the call, supporters were also able to communicate their research and policy priorities by participating in real-time, interactive quick polls.
It was exciting to have so many of you join us at this year’s telephone town hall! We are grateful to have such keen, committed supporters who take the time (waiting in queue) to ask thoughtful questions, and leave us a comment afterward.

CCPA town halls are only open to our supporters. If you didn’t have the opportunity to join us this year, donate today and participate in the next one!
