A decade of building socially just, sustainable communities.
Puget Sound Sage is turning ten! Come celebrate Puget Sound Sage's 10th Anniversary on Thursday, November 16th at 5:00 pm as we honor a decade of movement building and huge policy wins for working families in the region!
Our work has resulted in ground breaking policy changes such as Seattle's paid sick and safe leave, $15 minimum wage, a new low-income transit fare called ORCA Lift, and mandatory inclusionary housing policies to protect affordable housing in Seattle.

Seattle is Now a Step Closer to a Living Wage Than Any Other U.S. City
May 1, 2014 - Seattle will have the highest minimum wage in the nation if the Seattle City Council adopts a Blue Ribbon proposal announced today. The Mayor’s Income Inequality Advisory Committee now officially calls for a raise of the minimum wage for large employers to $15 an hour.
April 20, 2014 - Our analysis demonstrates that the average tipped worker in Seattle is roughly 32 years old, has at least some level of college education, and earns less than $15 an hour – even if you include tips in their hourly earnings.
