Initiative 1631 is a proposal on the ballot in November that keeps the biggest corporate polluters accountable for the pollution they send directly into our communities.
Initiative 1631 will require that these companies pay a fee on the pollution they produce in order to pay for the damage it does to our communities and environment. The money raised from the fee will be invested directly into cities and towns that are most impacted by the effects of climate change pollution and fund projects that ensure clean energy and a healthier environment for future generations.
This initiative was put together with input from over 300 organizations, representing every community and people, and has been endorsed by many more, including businesses, faith groups, health associations, and social advocacy organizations like Latino Community Fund. Together, we have helped create the largest coalition in Washington State history to support this initiative and take back control of our future from the hands of big corporations.
Learn more at https://yeson1631.org/ and vote YES on Initiative 1631 by November 6th.

Big Oil has raised over $21 million to fund false advertisements to stop 1631. We can only overcome their efforts by being out in our communities sharing the truth on how 1631 is going to tackle pollution in our communities. Join us for a day of canvassing in SOUTH SEATTLE, TACOMA, YAKIMA AND MT VERNON (location details below). More get-out-the-vote events in our community to come.
