There’s plenty of money in this state – the big tech industry in Seattle has created billionaires and millionaires. The problem is that under our state tax code, regular people pay more of their money into the system than the richest individuals and companies, making it the most unbalanced tax system in the country.
That’s where we come in: the Rural Roots Project is an effort to put the voice of rural Washingtonians into the mix when it comes to making our state’s tax system work for working people. Over the last few months, we have been talking with ranchers, farmers and business owners from rural and small-town Washington, and we want to invite you to the conversation.
RSVP NOW FOR THE EASTERN WA SESSION!
We are hosting a series of online town halls to share with you what we know about tax fairness in Washington, and you are invited. We’ll share what we know about different policies like the wealth tax and the capital gains tax, and how people in towns all across Washington are being impacted.
When you attend one of these town halls, you’ll leave with more knowledge of how the tax system is unfair for working people, and how you can help make things better for your neighbors and community. If you cannot make the town hall for your region, please feel free to attend one of the other virtual town halls below.
We are a movement of small business owners, 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.
