Background

Since January, the Tax Amazon coalition has been fighting for Seattle to pass a tax on the 800 richest corporations to provide immediate covid relief to Seattleites and to fund the construction of union-built green housing and home retrofitting, putting thousands of people back to work after covid. The recent move by the City Council to delay discussing this legislation means we can’t rely on them to stand up to big business. We need to go all out to get the Amazon tax for green homes and green jobs on the November ballot and take the matter directly to the voters! Seattle DSA’s campaign as part of the Tax Amazon coalition is called Green New Homes because that’s what we’re fighting for. We have until approximately July 1 to help the coalition collect 21k valid signatures.

This Tuesday: Committee Meeting and Phone Bank

We’ve sent the ballot petition to every Seattle DSA member (didn’t get yours? Fill out this form). Now we need to follow up and make sure all our comrades sign the petition, get others in their household to sign, and send it back.

On Tuesday we’ll talk game plan for the next several weeks of our campaign:

  • “Amazon Tax Prime” petition and delivery service, an effort of the Tax Amazon coalition
  • District group phone banks and organizing
  • Interstate banner drops
  • Neighborhood postering
  • District community forums

And then continue phone banking SDSA members to follow up with them about the ballot petition.

If you’re interested in getting involved in Tax Amazon for Green New Homes, this is a great meeting to come to!

Find the zoom link on slack (Tax Amazon committee channel) if you’re an SDSA member, or register here.
