Invitation to Action!

Support the Revenue for Housing Petition!

Join St. Leo Social Justice Commission in urging the Pierce County Council to utilize a new Washington State law allowing the County Council to authorize a local option sales tax of one penny per ten dollars of sales.

This could generate as much as $20 million per year, an immediate way to begin to meet the housing and services needs of those most vulnerable among us. Please sign the petition and share with your networks!

Join others to voice your support through public comment at Pierce County Council meetings. To join the ongoing grass roots group advocating for this council action, contact Carolyn Read at readcarolyn@comcast.net.
