Tell the Mayor: No Veto
(from the Transit Riders Union):
We need your help to tell Mayor Durkan that a plan to build just 250 units of low-income housing over five years, when the immediate need is in the tens of thousands of units, is simply unacceptable. The nine City Councilmembers will also be copied on this email.

Resist Trump Tuesday continues on Tuesday, May 15 at 11:45 a.m. outside the Henry M. Jackson Federal Building, followed by a meeting with our Senators’ Staffers!
Weekly Seattle Indivisible Meeting Tuesday, May 15 at 7pm at the Washington State Labor Council
So much has happened this week -- much of it good for Trump, not so good for us. Come join us as we process and try to make sense of
- Gina Haspel’s confirmation prospects to head CIA
- Trump’s reneging on the Iran nuclear deal
- De-nuclearization talks with North Korea in June
- Investigation of Michael Cohen without NY AG Eric Schneidermann
- Tuesday’s primary election results and implications for November midterms
- Seattle City Council’s proposed head tax
Good News: Next week Indivisible plans will unveil Indivisible Action, a new Political Action Committee with new tools to further empower grass-roots activists like us to network and organize to maximize our impact on the November midterms (as well as special elections between now and then). Both here in WA state and beyond.
Come join us to learn more about this, and to enjoy the mutual support of like-minded progressives.
WHERE: Washington State Labor Council (321 16TH AVE S, Seattle, WA 98144)
WHEN: Tuesday, May 15 7-9pm
This meeting venue is wheelchair accessible, and can be reached by King County Metro buses 7, 14, 27, and 106, and the First Hill Streetcar.
