Join Councilmember Kshama Sawant and the Affordable Housing Alliance for a town hall to demand the City Council pass a $150 million Employee Hours Tax (EHT) on Seattle’s biggest businesses to fund affordable housing and homeless services. As Trump and the Republicans give a $1.3 trillion tax cut windfall for big business, Seattle’s affordable housing and homelessness crisis rages on. Rents and housing prices are still out of control and a record number of people are forced to live – and die – on the streets. Seattle needs an estimated 20,000 additional affordable housing units over the next decade to begin addressing the crisis. A $150 million EHT would allow the city to build 750 affordable housing units per year and add $30 million for homeless services. Come to the affordable housing town hall and join the fight to tax big business to build affordable housing and fund homeless services! 

Speakers will include Kshama Sawant and a representative of Seattle DSA! Workshops will also be co-hosted by Seattle DSA members!
