General Secretary of the Transit Riders Union, I spend much of my time organizing and fighting for the basic things people in our communities need to live a dignified life: Housing. Shelter. Affordable, accessible, and reliable public transit.
Now together, we’re doing battle with the Freedom Foundation and other forces of reaction as our legislation heads to the Washington State Supreme Court. If we win, this would raise $175 million a year in Seattle – revenue that can go to affordable housing, free community college tuition, the homelessness crisis, transit, and green jobs.
