Economic Justice Team: Take Action!
At our recent meeting, UUC’s Economic Justice Team discussed the efforts being taken at both city and state levels to revise budgets in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. We encourage you to contact your elected officials in support of progressive revenue increases, such as a capital gains tax. Ask them to minimize cuts to existing programs and personnel and revise budgets to support vulnerable individuals including immigrants and refugees, housing, and small businesses in the wake of the pandemic.
The Economic Justice Team encourages members and friends of UUC to take the following actions soon:
- Contact city council members and the mayor. Find and contact your city council member at https://www.seattle.gov/cityclerk/agendas-and-legislative-resources/find-your-council-district. Contact the mayor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
