SIGN UP NOW to fight back against Trump’s elitist tax plan.

Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal is hosting a Seattle town hall focused how we can resist Donald Trump's plans for tax giveaways to the wealthy. The president is trying to fast-track his tax plan that would give tax cuts of more than $270 billion to the the ultra-elite, the top 0.2 percent (2/10 of a percent) of the population, while increasing tax rated for middle class and low-income families.

This plan would have devastating impacts in Washington's 7th District and across the country.  Join with others in the district to raise your voice against the unfair Trump tax plan.  We must defeat it!

Monday, Oct. 30th
5:30 – 7:00 p.m.
Antioch University, 2400 3rd Ave, Suite 200, Seattle

Space is limited, so please RSVP if you plan on attending at this link: http://bit.ly/2xSIozW

ACTION:  Support the 2020 American Census Investment Act.

Did you know?  The 2020 US Census is being underfunded, and this puts traditionally under-counted groups, such as the homeless, at risk for being documented for government programs.  Ask your U.S. House Representative to support Rep. Carolyn Maloney's2020 American Census Investment Act, which would ensure the Census Bureau has the resources it needs to do its job effectively.

Even though it’s the weekend, we can still call our MOCs and leave voicemail - your messages will be counted!  - In a voicemail, please leave your full street address to ensure your call is tallied.


Rep. Pramila Jayapal: DC (202) 225-3106, Seattle (206) 674-0040

“Hello, my name is [NAME] and my street address is [full street address and zip code]. I have read that the 2020 U.S. Census is in danger of being short-changed due to underfunding.  I am calling today to express my deep concern that underfunding the census will harm those who need government programs, which depend on the census to support their numbers.  Please support the 2020 American Census Investment Act, and do everything you can to make sure the Census Bureau has the funding needed for an accurate count in 2020.  Thank you.”
