Thank you to Susan Fried, Ron Johnson and the rest of Community for these Wonderful Photos!
We have succeed! Initiative 1000 campaign team has submitted more than 387,000 signatures to the secretary of state’s office. We only needed 260,000 signatures to qualify the initiative.
This is not the end the Legislature, lawmakers can approve the measure or send it to the voters. If I-1000 qualifies, it could be approved during the legislative session that starts Monday or could be sent to the November ballot.
So please constantly check back in and we will try to keep you up to date!
THIS YEARS THEME
Every year we aim to create tangible change in our community! This year we are backing I-1000 which would redefine affirmative action in Washington, providing equal opportunities through recruitment, hiring, outreach, training, goal-setting and other methods designed to increase diversity.
This year the Seattle MLK organizing Coalition is ecstatic to partner with “Seattle Womxn Marching Forward” we are co-organizing a weekend of marching, rallying, workshopping, and healing, to help us all renew and plug in to the resistance. Take a look at their site here.
*Womxn with an “X” includes anyone who considers themselves a woman, and all non-binary / gender-non-conforming folks. Learn more here.
