“I support the Washington Voting Rights Act. I think it’s very important to make sure we have candidates representing the people in their district, because there are a lot of communities that are underrepresented. I’m from South Seattle where there are a lot of immigrant communities, and I know how important it is that all voices are part of the conversation.
I was part of phone bank on the Voting Rights Act, and I spoke to a woman from Yakima. She said she saw the disparity. There’s a big Latino community in her area, and she says it’s a really big problem because it’s hard to feel like the candidates really understand them.”
