Join us for 15 Now Conference on April 26 which will bring together hundreds of activists to launch the Vote 15 mass signature gathering campaign.

After Big Business launched the One Seattle Coalition for the interests of the 1%, designed to appear as a grassroots organization, yet run by Starbucks, Alaska Airlines, big grocery companies, and the Washington Restaurant Association (WRA) — the strength of our movement is more important than ever.

Your participation at the April 26 conference is key. The bigger and stronger the conference the more powerful our campaign will be.
