WPSR’s Economic Inequity & Health Task Force invites you to join us and learn why progressive taxation is essential for health and wellbeing.

Washington has the most regressive tax system in the country – people struggling to make ends meet pay the most, while the very wealthy pay the least. This harms everyone. Even the wealthiest among us.

Together we’ll learn how taxation affects health and equity, then discuss as a group how we can shift the narratives about taxation and make a difference in our state. We hope you’ll join us to get as excited about balancing our tax code as we are.
