The AARP Foundation's Tax Aid offers free tax preparation assistance and we have a group of volunteers dedicated to this effort right here in Vancouver and Portland. Now in its 50th year, Tax-Aid has helped millions of taxpayers with filing their state and Federal taxes. And the best part is you don't have to be an AARP member and there's no age requirement to get help. In this episode of The Common Good, host Joe Clemons introduces Charles Humble, Partnership and Communications Specialist with Tax Aid of Washington State. Charles and Joe site down and discuss Tax Aid and how it's helping thousands of folks in the community and how you too can help volunteer to help others.
Later in the show Joe is joined by KXRW field reporter Marliese Franklin and together they look back at the busy summer and the many voices from our community we joined at local events. From the Peace and Justice Fair at Esther Short Park to the always fun Cruise the Couv event in downtown Vancouver on Main Street to peaceful demonstrations and fundraising and networking events like ConnectFest - be sure to listen in - who knows, you may hear your voice.
