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!... See Less
Join us for an important discussion with Dr. Vincent Intondi, author of "African Americans Against the Bomb", on the intersection of US nuclear weapons policy and the fight for racial equality.
The United States is on a path to spend $1.7 trillion over the next 30 years rebuilding our entire nuclear weapons arsenal. This talk will address how African American activists have been involved in the fight against nuclear weapons, how racism, colonialism, and inequity have shaped our nuclear policy, and how this is playing out under our current Administration. We'll also explore why communities of color and other citizens concerned with social and racial justice can and should be engaged with the issue of nuclear weapons, and how to take action today.
