Join the Trump-Proof Seattle Coalition and me for a Town Hall in District 3 to challenge Washington State's regressive and unjust tax system, and support taxing Seattle's rich to fight against Trump and fund affordable housing and education!

Seattle is one of the wealthiest cities in the world, hosting some of the most profitable corporations, like Amazon. And this region is home to Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos, the two richest people on the planet. In spite of all this tremendous wealth, workers and poor people, especially those from communities of color, are struggling to get by.

Our state's regressive tax structure leaves social services, schools, and public transportation woefully underfunded. This is only made worse by extreme income inequality and skyrocketing rents in Seattle.

We need to tax the rich so that big business and the wealthy begin paying their fair share! In 2015, a person making $21,000 or less paid almost 17% of their income in taxes while the richest 1% paid a pitiful 2.4%.

Join my office and the Trump-Proof Seattle Coalition at our town hall to talk about a City ordinance to tax Seattle's rich! Winning this tax will require building a powerful movement that can prevail over the corporate politicians in City Hall. Now more than ever, we need to take bold action to tax the rich if we are to defeat the agenda of Trump and the billionaire class.

American Sign Language interpretation will be provided.
