Please protect 16 immigrant-owned businesses at risk of displacement by construction of a new police station. The following action has been provided by Coalition for the Fair Treatment of Tukwila Businesses, MLK Working Families Party, One America, Puget Sound Sage.
Action: Stand with Tukwila Immigrant Businesses Monday June 11 at 5:30 p.m. at Tukwila City Hall.
Take action Monday June 11 at 5:30 p.m. to support Tukwila immigrant businesses. The Tukwila City Council wants to erect a police station and displace the 16 immigrant businesses that are thriving on that land. We will let City Council know we want them to
1) Delay the police station;
2) Support our immigrant businesses and don’t displace them;
3) Don’t raise our taxes;
4) complete smaller projects that are within the budget - such as a fire station.
Monday June 11 at 5:30 p.m. at Tukwila City Hall, at 6200 Southcenter Boulevard, Tukwila, 98188, City Council members will be reviewing the financing of the Public Safety Project including the police station. The City of Tukwila admits that they don’t have the funds to do all the projects, including the police station and courthouse. The City of Tukwila should delay the police station and focus on financially doable projects; and not displace these vital immigrant businesses.
JOIN US MONDAY JUNE 11 at 5:30 p.m. at TUKWILA CITY HALL.
