VALUES

 

Racial Equity

We are committed to ending systemic racism, oppression, and white supremacy.  We support leaders and policies that get at the roots of injustice, disrupt systems that discriminate, and eliminate barriers to equal opportunity for people of every race and ethnicity to achieve their fullest potential.


LGBTQI Rights

We believe in dignity, safety, and equality for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and intersex Washingtonians.  That means equitable access to housing, informed healthcare, employment, and the opportunity to live fulfilling lives free of discrimination.


Reproductive Justice

All people deserve access to preventive health care, including lifesaving breast and cervical cancer screenings, testing and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, and contraception.  Young people should receive reliable, accurate sex education they need to make responsible decisions, reduce teen pregnancy, and stay healthy.  Every woman should have access to the full range of reproductive health care, including access to safe, legal abortion services without interference from the government.


Environment

We support strong policies to protect our environment and move us toward a clean energy system and a green economy.  We believe strongly in environmental justice and want the benefits of the green movement and green economy to be accessible to low income communities and communities of color.


Worker's Rights

We believe that protecting and advancing the rights of working people and their families will lead the way to a more just and humane world.  Living wages, safe working conditions, respect in the workplace, and the right to organize make our society stronger.


Education

An equitable and just educational and system is one where each and every child can thrive and succeed.  We support community-driven strategies to closing the opportunity gap that takes into account the effects of race, homelessness, racial and institutional discrimination, children and parents whose first language is not English, poverty, and family instability.
