Join us this Sunday, March 7th, to hear from long-standing Central District resident Kibibi Monié about why she is supporting the Kshama Solidarity Campaign. Kibibi runs the Nu Black Arts West Theater and worked with Kshama’s council office to rename a street in the Central District after Douglas Q. Barnett, who is known for introducing Black theatre productions to Seattle in 1960.
Seattle’s Central District has been the target of rapid, developer-driven gentrification — disproportionately impacting the Black community which has lived and worked in the neighborhood for generations. As rents skyrocket, more and more working people in the Central District are being forced out of Seattle while Black owned small businesses are struggling to survive.
And just last week, the lives of thousands of renters and workers in the Central District were disrupted because of a dangerous underground gas leak and fire, due to the irresponsibility of Puget Sound Energy, which donated massive sums of money to Kshama’s opponent in 2019 because of her commitment to fight for a Seattle Green New Deal.
Kshama Sawant has never been afraid to stand up to big business and do what’s necessary to ensure a livable future. She used her council office to fight alongside the Tax Amazon movement and pass a historic big business tax to fund a Seattle Green New Deal and affordable housing - with the first 1,000 homes in the Central District.
This is just one example of why the right wing and big business want Kshama out of office: because she’s the only politician standing in solidarity with our movements and fighting to raise the Amazon Tax for COVID relief for working people and small businesses, to establish community control of the police, and to implement a Green New Deal jobs program!
Following our speakers, we'll phonebank the district to defend the Councilmember that money can't buy and build the movement for COVID relief paid for by taxing big business!
