Thank you to everyone who joined us and Rep. Pramila Jayapal yesterday to canvass for these four progressive candidates for Burien City Council: Nancy Tosta, Krystal Marx, Pedro Olguin, and Jimmy Matta. This is a very hard-fought election, so we need all the help we can get on this.
We've got a loaded schedule ahead of us, so today's action will be to help you plan for these.

NOTE: Because the senate staffers are not holding office hours on 10/10, we will not be holding a Resist Trump Tuesday rally that day. Rallies will resume the following week.
Tuesday, 10/17: Resist Trump Tuesday Rally
Join us at the Federal Building as we tell our elected officials in no uncertain terms that Trump's tax "reform" to benefit millionaires and billionaires will inflict untold harm on ordinary Americans, and our put our country's fiscal future in jeopardy.
As usual, we will enter the Federal Building immediately after the rally for a meeting with Senate staffers. Also as usual (from now through December), we will be gathering signatures for De-Escalate Washington's I-940 ballot initiative at the rally for better police training and accountability.
