GREEN NEW HOMES / TAX AMAZON DISTRICT 3 Phonebank
May 13, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=15457
Since January, the Tax Amazon coalition has been fighting for Seattle to pass a tax on the 800 richest corporations to provide immediate financial aid to the 100,000 Seattleites most in need and to fund the construction of union-built green housing and home retrofitting. On Thursday though, three Democrat Seattle City Councilmembers shelved the bill the Tax Amazon coalition has been fighting for. The Council’s decision is a wake-up call that we need to ramp up pressure on them by preparing to take this matter directly to the voters — and we need all SDSA members’ help to go all out to collect the required signatures by July 1st.
In the past week all Seattle DSA members should have received a newsletter and the Tax Amazon / Green New Homes petition in the mail with the request to sign it and to mail it back. This is an important way we’re going to help get the 30,000 signatures needed to get on the ballot by July 1st.
