Join us as we host a virtual action to gain information about the 1590 bill, hear from City Council members about their support, and how Spokane will be impacted by passing 1590. This bill will generate $5-6 million dollars a year for affordable housing in Spokane by increasing sales tax by a minor 0.1% (8.9% - 9.0%). Our city is facing a severe housing crisis, having major housing shortage, with near-zero vacancy rates. Personal testimonies will be shared by community members, questions will be answered by city council members, and action will be taken by all of us!
A lack of affordable housing is a not just a problem for those currently homeless or in danger of becoming so, but every member of our community. Affordable housing is essential to a healthy community, so please join us as we bring attention and critical examination of 1590 at our community action event.
Invite everyone and anyone to accompany you!
