We are a movement of educators, working families, and everyday Washingtonians advocating for progressive revenue solutions.

 

We believe that the best way to support families and businesses during the COVID- 19 crisis is to keep money flowing to our communities, invest in people, and ask the wealthy few and profitable corporations to do their part. Together, we can build a Washington that works for all of us.

“For the last five years I’ve sat across the kitchen tables from caregivers across this state, hearing about the hard work and sacrifices they make taking care of our most vulnerable. It’s time for Washington to meet this moment and care for those who care for us by investing in our communities, not making massive, immoral cuts.”

“This campaign means a lot to me on a personal level because both of my elderly parents’ health depends on government-funded programs like Medicaid. I’ve spoken to so many vulnerable Washingtonians – seniors, caregivers, veterans, and parents. It’s heartbreaking to see these vulnerable people have food and care stripped away while billionaires get a tax treat.”
