The Washington State Democrats never stop organizing — that’s why we have a year-round Coordinated Campaign team to run our Rise and Organize program. We’re carrying that enthusiasm from the 2020 blue wave into our local elections and help countless diverse candidates to Rise and Run for all levels of elected offices.
As we are working to elect leaders that reflect all Washingtonians’ diversity, we are also working within our organization to ensure that we are doing the work to have a more inclusive, progressive State Party! In 2021, a Director of Equity and Inclusion will join our team to lead our diversity, equity, and inclusion plan that is more reflective of the state’s diversity and our voters.
Sticking with our motto “every race in every place,” we look forward to expanding our outreach in rural communities as we look forward to 2021 redistricting.
