Who We Are

The Working Families Tax Credit Coalition is a coalition of organizations spanning economic and racial justice groups, immigrant rights advocates, labor unions, direct service providers, domestic violence advocates, and more. Our goal is working together to make sure communities most impacted by Washington’s upside down tax code receive cash in hand. Membership in the coalition is free and open to any  organization, community group, or individual who shares this goal.

Are you a community group or organization interested in joining the coalition? Contact us here.

Our Values

We believe that the tax code has the potential to be used as a tool for undoing racist legacies.

Washington State’s Tax Code is upside down, meaning low income filers pay up to six times more in taxes than the wealthiest 1%. This perpetuates poverty, economic injustice, and racial inequity in our state. We know that direct cash payments – like the Working Families Tax Credit – are a powerful way to help return economic stability to low income families, immigrant communities, and communities of color across Washington.
