Tell lawmakers how to fix the school funding crisis: Oct 19, 5PM in Renton

Join Radical Women at a public meeting of the Senate Early Learning and K-12 Education Committee

For decades, Washington legislators have refused to provide adequate funding for public schools. The state Supreme Court finally lost patience and is imposing a penalty of $100,000 a day until the legislature comes through with the funds. The only real solution is to change the state’s tax structure to tax wealthy individuals and corporations. It’s not enough to close a few paltry tax loopholes or further penalize workers and the poor through higher property taxes and sales taxes. Members of the Senate education committee are holding a “listening tour” in different regions around the state. Come speak out for funding schools through taxing the rich and wealthy corporations. This meeting at the Renton headquarters of the Puget Sound Educational Service District will be the opportunity for people in 35 school districts of King and Pierce counties to say their piece.

800 Oakesdale Ave. SW, Renton
Monday, October 19, 5-7pm
