No matter what we look like or where we come from, most of us work hard for our families. But, for too long, the wealthy few have rigged the rules for their own financial gain.
Our upside-down tax code has meant that those who make the least pay the most in state and local taxes.
It means that the wealthy few aren’t paying their share.
What’s more, our tax code makes it harder for Black and brown communities to build and pass on wealth.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
That’s why we came together in 2021 to rewrite the rules and remake our tax code. We helped to pass a capital gains tax on the super rich to fund childcare, education, and more.
Then, a handful of the state’s richest people tried to roll back the taxes they owe by launching Initiative 1929.
We came together again to defeat I-1929 and make sure the wealthy pay what they owe for our kids and schools.
Our work isn’t over because I-1929 is dead.
The wealthy folks who were behind this measure will not stop in their attempts to further rig the system in their favor. We won’t stop until we have a fair and just tax code that works for all of us, not just the wealthy few.
With families, educators, and workers on our side – we are more motivated and organized than ever before.
Act now: Join thousands in signing the petition calling on lawmakers in Olympia to pass a wealth tax on billionaires.
