Tax Amazon Legislation Unveiling! Tomorrow – Wed 3/4 at 9am

Join our movement as my Council office unveils our draft legislation to Tax Amazon and Seattle’s wealthiest corporations for permanently affordable social housing and a Green New Deal!

Join us! Tax Amazon Legislation Unveiling and Press Conference
Tomorrow, March 4th
9AM in Seattle City Hall

Dear friends and fellow housing activists,

As we all, I’m sure, are keenly aware, Seattle is in the throes of a stunning and unprecedented affordable housing and homelessness crisis. Sky-high rents and soaring home prices are driving working-class households, seniors, students, and especially working families of color out of our city, and sometimes into homelessness.

The loss of affordable housing in Seattle is a crisis deeply impacting the lives of people throughout our city and region and disproportionately harms people of color, immigrants, the LGBTQ community, indigenous peoples’ communities, disabled community members, and women, who already struggle against entrenched inequality.

We cannot wait to address this crisis. We need a massive expansion of union built, green, and permanently affordable social housing paid for by taxing the super wealthy like the billionaires of Amazon!

Join our movement tomorrow morning, March 4th at 9am in Seattle City Hall (600 4th Ave) as we unveil our draft legislation to do just that.

See you there and solidarity,

Kshama Sawant, Seattle City Councilmember District 3
