King County Proposition 1 Access for All

We are fully endorsing King County Proposition 1: Access for All.  Please vote by August 1!

Access for All will provide increased funding for arts, science and heritage education and access for students and families throughout King County. With Access for All, we will invest in programs that change lives, give more kids access to the same opportunities and help our communities thrive.

In August, voters will be asked to increase cultural access funding by raising the county sales tax 0.1 percent — just one penny for every $10 spent, or $30 a year for the average household. If approved in August, we will increase funding for regional and community arts, science, and heritage institutions by about $70 million, which will be spent on programs like in-school education and free and reduced ticket programs for low-income and middle-class families.
