Sisters and Brothers,


We had an inspiring launch of the Tax Amazon 2020 campaign on January 13! Now join us at the Action Conference to be a part of a united, fighting movement to tax large corporations to fund a major expansion of social housing for working people - publicly-owned, affordable, green, energy-efficient homes built by union labor! 

Our region is facing the worst housing crisis in the country, despite the construction boom and massive corporations making billions in profits right here in Seattle. 

This city needs hundreds of millions of dollars for social housing - publicly-owned, permanently-affordable, energy-efficient homes to truly address the housing crisis in an environmentally sustainable way. Working people, homeowners, and small businesses are burdened, while the massively profitable corporations are taxed what amounts to pocket change.

We need to Tax Amazon and big business!

Tax Amazon Action Conference 
For Social Housing and a Green New Deal
Pack WA Hall to Make Your Voice Heard! 
SATURDAY! Jan 25, 10am-2pm
Washington Hall (153 14th Ave)

Big business will fight this tooth and nail, we will need to build a fighting movement to win this. Our movement will need to unite working people and the marginalized, renters, homeowners, and homeless neighbors, small businesses, community members!

Please come to the Tax Amazon Action Conference to build this movement, and to be a part of the discussion on different proposals for an Amazon Tax, including how much it should raise annually, what it should fund and what tax mechanism we should use, as well as to organize the grassroots, fighting strategy needed to win.
