Emily Vyhnanek

Working Families Tax Credit Campaign Manager

Working with a coalition of partners across the state, Emily manages the Working Families Tax Credit Campaign. This campaign seeks to help Washingtonians keep up with our state’s rising cost of living by putting cash back in their pockets.

An advocate for tax and economic justice, Emily previously led the Free Tax Preparation Campaign at United Way of King County, a regional effort to increase access to powerful federal anti-poverty tax credits like the Earned Income Tax Credit. Emily also launched United Way’s 2020 Census Education and Outreach strategy in partnership with a coalition of community leaders in King County.

Emily has a bachelor’s degree in international studies from the University of Washington. In her spare time, Emily plays rugby and enjoys spending time with her partner and their dog, Goose.
