Keep Seattle Livable For All

Who We Are

Keep Seattle Livable For All is a coalition of concerned citizens, businesses and community organizations actively opposing new taxes on everyday items like juice drinks, diet beverages, sodas, teas, sports drinks and ready-to-drink coffee beverages. We’re taking a stand because Seattle citizens can’t afford to pay even more at grocery stores, convenience stores and restaurants. Nor can our businesses afford customers leaving the city to buy elsewhere.
