March This Weekend!

This Saturday, people across Washington and across the country will be marching to stand up to Donald Trump and his corrupt administration. While Trump and the Republicans will be trying to take away people’s health care, cut workers’ wages, and eliminate or privatize programs like Social Security and Medicare, we’ll be fighting back to protect education, health care, women’s choice, equality and justice for all, and the issues we know matter to the American people. 

While more than 50,000 people are expected to be at the Seattle march, there will be other marches across the state that may be more convenient for you – from Longview to Spokane, Bellingham to Ephrata. These are the marches we’re aware of:

We encourage you to join a local march and speak out against Trump and the Republicans!

 

Thank You, President Obama!

From driving the uninsured rate below 10 percent (the lowest since we started keeping record), to adding more than 9 million jobs, to cutting homelessness among veterans nearly in half – we could go on and on about all the quantifiable positive change that the Obama administration brought about for Americans.  You can check that out here.

But beyond these numbers, President Barack Obama showed us what kind of person he is. He is a patient and inspiring leader. A fierce believer in science and research. A family man with a sense of humor. An advocate for *all* of us.

A truly and thoroughly decent man, who will be truly and thoroughly missed.

Thank you, President Obama. Thank you.
